AngoSat 2

The AngoSat 2 is a communications satellite built for Angola to replace the failed AngoSat 1.

The Angosat Project calls for development of a communications satellite with C- and Ku-band transponders, its launch into a geostationary orbit and development of the ground communication and TV broadcasting infrastructure.

After the loss of AngoSat 1, it was expected that the replacement would be identical. But in August 2019 it was revealed, that the replacement satellite is being built completely by Airbus Defence & Space. Construction has started in February 2018. The launch is planned for 2021, still using a Russian launch vehicle
