Tel Aviv, Israel (SPX) Jan 26, 2016


AMOS-6's 39 Ku-band segments and 24 Ka-band beams will provide a wide array of services.

Spacecom reports announced that Space-X has scheduled the launch of the AMOS-6 satellite for May 2016. AMOS-6, to be co-located with AMOS-2 and AMOS-3 at the 4 W prime orbital position, will provide services to Western, Central and Eastern Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

Its Ka-band beams have been selected by Facebook to be the satellite backbone of its initiative to bring broadband Internet to Sub Sahara Africa with Eutelsat.

Space-X is scheduled to launch AMOS-6 via a Falcon-9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, FL, USA during the May 2016 window.

AMOS-6's 39 Ku-band segments and 24 Ka-band beams will provide a wide array of services. The new satellite will be larger than AMOS-2 and AMOS-3 combined and will incorporate new technologies such as High Throughput Ka-band spot beams for improved broadband internet access. The Ka-band spot beams will cover Europe and Africa as well as Ku-band technologies for new and existing clients.

Spacecom CEO and president David Pollack, stated, "We are excited by AMOS-6. It will expand our European coverage throughout all of the continent with a new Pan-European beam and with its HTS Ka-band spot beams, the satellite will take us into new markets and provide tremendous services to our clients."
