AsiaSat 5 on site for launch

Rose Major

AsiaSat 5 has arrived at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan ahead of a Proton vehcle launch scheduled for early to mid-August.

The satellite is a replacement for AsiaSat 2 at 100.5 degrees East. The spacecraft, based on Space Systems/Lorals 1300 satellite bus, is designed to provide advanced satellite services including broadcast TV, telephone and VSAT networks for broadband multimedia services across Asia Pacific.

Carrying 26 C-band and 14 Ku-band transponders, AsiaSat 5 will covers more than 53 countries spanninf from Russia to New Zealand and from Japan to the Middle East and parts of Africa. Its Ku-band coverage will consist of two high-power fixed Ku-band beams over East Asia and South Asia, and an in-orbit steerable Ku beam. The three Ku-band beams are designed with switching capability to switch any uplink to any downlink beam to meet specific application requirements.
