    EADS : Astrium to build new satellite for US operator DIRECTV

    Astrium, Europe's leading space technology company, has been awarded a contract by US company DIRECTV Latin America to build the latest addition to its communications satellite fleet. The satellite will be based on Astrium's highly reliable Eurostar E3000 platform and will be placed in orbit at the start of 2016.

    The satellite will provide broadcasting services through up to 60 Ku-band transponders to Brazil, ensuring continuity of legacy services countrywide, while at the same time expanding into new services such as HDTV. To do so, it will be capable of providing overall coverage across Brazil, as well as regional television channels through 20 spot beams.
