Israel and Communication Satellite Systems

Although by the end of 1994 Israel had launched only two small experimental LEO satellites, the country was preparing to launch its first GEO spacecraft in 1995 on board an Ariane vehicle. Developed by Israel Aircraft Industries with assistance from DASA and Alcatel Espace, the 500-kg-class AMOS (Affordable Modular Optimized Satellite) will carry 7 Ku-band transpenders (plus two spares) for Eurasian communications services.
