Satellite Update On Es’hail-2

Es’hail-2 will have Ku-band and Ka-band capabilities and provide TV distribution, telecoms and government services to strategic stakeholders and commercial customers who value broadcasting independence, interference resilience, quality of service and wide geographical coverage. 

Es’hail-2 will also provide the first Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT) with geostationary communication capacity that links Brazil to India in one single hop and in real-time.  It will also assist the AMSAT community to validate and demonstrate their DVB standard.

In addition to the manufacture of Es’hail-2, MELCO will also operate an in-house satellite-training program for Qatari engineers, continuing our strategy of developing capabilities within the organization and building a sustainable industry for the State of Qatar.
