abs7-satellite-large

SATELLITE OVERVIEW

ABS-7 is a Lockheed Martin A2100 satellite featuring Ku and Ka-band transponders. The satellite’s two FSS beams cover Afghanistan and the Middle East region, making it ideal for GSM cellular backhaul, satellite broadband, VSAT services and government applications.

The high-powered BSS Ku-band coverage over Pakistan, Afghanistan and North West India is suitable for DTH and CATV video distribution.

Its Ka-band beam over Afghanistan and Pakistan is also highly suitable for government applications.
