About the AMOS-5 Satellite

Launched in 2011 to the 17°E orbital position — a new orbital slot over Africa — the AMOS-5 satellite positions Spacecom at the forefront of Africa’s emerging satellite services market.

The AMOS-5 satellite features a fixed pan-African C-band beam and three steerable Ku-band beams — all covering Africa with connectivity to Europe and the Middle East and supporting multiple transponders in both C-band and Ku-band.

The AMOS-5 satellite offers Spacecom customers a wide range of satellite services, including:

  • Direct-to-home (DTH) broadcasting
  • VSAT communications and broadband Internet
  • Telephony services
  • Data trunking
  • Cellular backhaul
  • Video distribution

Together with the AMOS-2 and the AMOS-3 satellites co-located at Spacecom’s 4°W orbital “hot spot,” the AMOS-5 satellite gives customers coverage over many of the world’s fastest growing and highest-demand satellite markets in the Middle East, Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia and Africa.
