AMOS 4

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2013-045A

Description

AMOS 4 was built by Israel Aerospace Industries for Spacecom, Israel's Tel Aviv-based communications satellite operator. The geostationary satellite will provide direct-to-home television broadcasting, multimedia, broadband Internet and mobile communications services for 12 years. Amos 4 will extend Spaceom's coverage footprint to Russia and Asia, along with improving service in the Middle East and Europe with Ku-band and Ka-band transponders. The satellite will be positioned in geostationary orbit 22,300 miles [35,888 km] over the equator at 65 degrees east longitude, but Amos 4 will initially operate from 67.25 degrees east longitude for in-orbit testing.
