SATELLITE OVERVIEW

The ABS-2A satellite was successfully launched on June 12, 2016 on a SpaceX Falcon 9.   It entered service in early 2017.   The satellite is co-located with ABS-2 at the prime location of 75°E. Designed with 48 transponders and 5 dedicated high powered Ku-band beams, ABS-2A serves South Asia, South East Asia, Russia, Sub-Saharan Africa and the MENA region. It provides services for DTH, VSAT operators, maritime and mobility solutions. ABS-2A is a Boeing all-electric propulsion 702SP satellite.
