Spacecom takes over AsiaSat 2 - 28-January-2010, 20:56

Spacecom, the operator of the AMOS satellite fleet, has signed a contract for the exclusive use of AsiaSat 2. The satellite has been relocated from 100.5 degrees East to 17 degrees East and renamed AMOS-5i.
AMOS-5i will provide high powered C-band and Ku-band capacity for a variety of satellite communications services to the African continent until AMOS-5 is launched and commences service in mid 2011.
Spacecom has also contracted AsiaSat to provide satellite operation and Telemetry, Tracking and Control (TT&C) services for AMOS-5i.
Peter Jackson, CEO of AsiaSat said: “We are very proud that AsiaSat 2 has successfully completed over 13 years of service life in Asia and will continue to serve other parts of the world at a new orbital location. AsiaSat 2 is a very valuable asset for the Company. We anticipate that AsiaSat 2’s quality and reliable service will continue to be of great value to Spacecom and its users.”
David Pollack, President and CEO of Spacecom said: “AMOS 5i provides us an excellent opportunity to start developing our new orbital slot of 17 degrees East before the new satellite AMOS-5 is launched.”
