Astra 2G Satellite at 28.2° East

On the night of December 27, 2014, ASTRA 2G, was launched into space aboard an ILS Proton booster and released into a geostationary transfer orbit. It was the newest addition to the group of communications satellites called Astra 28.2°E, which are located in the Clarke Belt, and owned by global media service provider SES.

 

Through the ASTRA 2G and other satellite technology, The Global eXclusive Satellite Telecommunication Services & Fiber Optic Networks offers cost-effective turnkey solutions for small and large broadcasters alike. Today, The Global eXclusive Satellite Telecommunication Services & Fiber Optic Networks is known as a leading provider for high-quality satellite uplinks, teleport services, and broadcasting services, allowing for media content delivery to customers all over the world.

ASTRA Satellite History

Space-based satellite technologies, such as those provided by ASTRA 2G, not only reduce infrastructure requirements but provide more cost-effective delivery of communication services. Distance is no longer a part of the equation previously faced with ground-based alternatives.

ASTRA 2G was developed by Airbus Defence and Space, with an expected design life of 15 years, and a spacecraft power of 13kW until its service life ends. It was based on the Eurostar E3000 platform, with a launch mass of 6 tons, and a wingspan of 40m.

Although it was tested in a variety of locations, ASTRA 2G's final position was at 28.2°E, a spot determined to be the most effective. It was the 24th SES satellite to be boosted by the ILS Proton booster, and the 9th Eurostar SES satellite. It is due to high-quality satellite systems such as the ASTRA that allow The Global eXclusive Satellite Telecommunication Services & Fiber Optic Networks to provide the best in satellite communication services.

ASTRA 2G Capabilities and The Global eXclusive Satellite Telecommunication Services & Fiber Optic Networks

ASTRA 2G provides the Middle East, Europe, and Africa next-generation broadcast, VSAT, and broadband services through ASTRA 2G, which carries both Ku- and Ka-band payloads at its prime orbital location of 28.2/28.5°E. In addition, ASTRA 2G allows a connection between West Africa and Europe via Ka-band.
