AsiaSat 5, commissioned on 28th April 2006, is a Space Systems/Loral 1300 series satellite designed to replace AsiaSat 2 at the orbital location of 100.5 degrees East.

AsiaSat 5 will be equipped with 26 C-band and 14 Ku-band transponders with an estimated operational life of 15 years. Its C-band footprint will provide extensive pan-Asian coverage and its high power Ku-band beams will focus on both East and South Asia, with a steerable beam that will cover anywhere within AsiaSat 5's geographic coverage.

AsiaSat 5 will be launched by a Proton-M Briz-M rocket on the International Launch Services, scheduled for 2009 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.
