By Carlos PIRES, the

The satellite Amazonas Nexus of the satellite operator Hispasat is in Cape Canaveral (Florida) for its next launch by means of a SpaceX Falcon 9 next February.

The Amazonas Nexus was transferred from the facilities of Thales Alenia Space (Cannes), where it was manufactured, at the space base aboard a Russian Antonov plane.

The Amazonas Nexus will cover the entire American continent, Greenland and the North and South Atlantic corridors and will focus on connectivity services in remote areas and in air and maritime mobility environments.

This satellite represents a new era for the services provided by Hispasat, as it has a state-of-the-art Digital Transparent Processor (DTP) that will allow it to increase its geographical flexibility if changes occur in the commercial scenarios initially planted.
