The ABS fleet of satellites covers 93 percent of the world across the Americas, Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East, CIS and Russia. Our fleet comprises 6 satellites: ABS-2, ABS-2A, ABS-3A, ABS-4/Mobisat-1, ABS-6 and ABS-7.
Our extensive coverage enables the delivery of a full range of tailored broadcast, data and telecommunications services in Ku, C, Ka and S-band frequencies.
The successful launch of ABS-2A in June 2016 was the last of our three satellite build strategy, completing a $700M CAPEX program. ABS has utilized the latest technological innovation in the design of these satellites and was one of the very first operators to use the new Boeing 702SP satellite design, featuring all-electric propulsion.
We are planning to expand our fleet with ABS-8, ABS-9 and ABS-10 to enable us to continue to serve our customers with capacity and comprehensive services well into the future.
ABS offers customers services of the very highest standard via our comprehensive network of partner and hosted teleport facilities located across Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. These state-of–the-art facilities are staffed by highly experienced personnel and engineers that provide around the clock support. This enables us to ensure that our customers may access our satellites from a wide variety of locations around the world.
