Arianespace to launch ABS-2 in 2013

Arianespace confirmed today the launch date for the ABS-2 satellite for Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS), one of the leading satellite operators in the Asia Pacific. ABS-2 will be launched by an Ariane 5 rocket from the Guiana Space Center, Europe’s Spaceport in French Guiana, in 2013.

The ABS-2 satellite, manufactured by Space Systems/Loral using an LS-1300 platform, will weigh more than 6,000 kg at launch. It will be positioned in geostationary orbit at 75 degrees East where ABS-1, ABS-1A and ABS-1B are currently located. Fitted with C, Ku, and Ka-band transponders, it will provide optimized direct TV broadcast, multimedia applications, telecommunications and data transmission services for Asia, Russia/CIS, Africa and the Middle East.
