AsiaSat 7 set for launch

AsiaSat 7, the Hong Kong-based satellite operator’s latest satellite, is scheduled for launch on November 26 onboard an ILS Proton Breeze M vehicle from Baikonur in Kazakhstan.

AsiaSat 7, with 28 C-band and 17 Ku-band transponders, will replace the AsiaSat 3S satellite at 105.5° East, and will deliver C-band services over the Middle East and central Asia as well as Australasia, with Ku-band coverage over East Asia and South Asia, as well as via a steerable beam.
