Arabsat 7A

Arabsat 7A [TAS]

Arabsat 7A is a fully flexible Software-Defined Satellite (SDS) owned by Arabsat.

Arabsat 7A will be based on the Space-Inspire (INstant SPace In-orbit REconfiguration) innovative product line allowing seamless telecommunications mission and services reconfiguration, instant in-orbit adjustment to broadband connectivity demand, and superior video broadcasting performance while maximizing the effective use of the satellite resources.

Arabsat 7A will join Arabsat 6A and Arabsat 5A at its data hotspot at 30.5 East. It will replace the bulk of the existing C and Ku-band capacity on Arabsat 5A as this satellite reaches end-of-life to ensure a seamless transition for customers and partners. It will also offer ample high-throughput Ku-band capacity to help Arabsat expand its services into several verticals to enhance its portfolio of products and solutions over Middle East, Africa and beyond, to parts of Europe.
