Spacecom’s AMOS-6 Satellite to Provide Pan-European Services Following Scheduled 2015 Launch10.09.2014
AMOS-6 will provide Pan European Beam and HTS Ka spot beams
Tel Aviv: Spacecom (Tel Aviv Stock Exchange: SCC), operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, will showcase the AMOS-6 satellite’s capabilities at IBC 2014 in Amsterdam. From booth #1 C65, Spacecom will describe AMOS-6’s advantages including a pan-European beam and High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Ka-spot beam capacity. The satellite, larger than AMOS-2 and AMOS-3 combined, is scheduled for launch in 2015 to the 4°W prime orbital position.
Offering 39 Ku-band segments and 24 Ka-band beams to provide a wide array of services, AMOS-6 will be fitted with numerous new technologies including electronic propulsion capabilities to save on weight and cost. The satellite’s HTS spot beams will bring multiple times more throughput than traditional satellites thereby enabling broadcasters and service providers to re-think business opportunities in providing various data services, including mass market broadband services.
According to Spacecom CEO and president David Pollack, “AMOS-6 will bring the AMOS brand to more territories and add greater value for our customers across Western Europe, the Middle East and into Africa. We are pre-selling capacity on the satellite and can note that the current pre-sold fill rate is on a steady line upwards.”
