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.

Arianespace continues to confirm its leadership in the Asian market, as the benchmark supplier of launch Services & Solutions. With this latest announcement and 58 satellites launched to date for Asian operators, Arianespace also confirms its excellent long-standing relations in this key market.

Jean-Yves Le Gall, Chairman & CEO of Arianespace said, “ABS is a dynamic operator with a lot of professional expertise so we are particularly proud to have won their confidence to launch the ABS 2 satellite that will be critical for their company’s future. This latest contract is further recognition of the quality and competitiveness of our launch Service & Solutions.”
