AsiaSat 6 launch postponed

The launch of AsiaSat 6 has been postponed until further notice to allow more time for launch service provider SpaceX to examine and verify data. The satellite and launch vehicle remain in a safe configuration. The launch had already been delayed by one day until August 27th because of an explosion of a test flight of a prototype SpaceX rocket on August 22nd.
AsiaSat 6, based on Space Systems/Loral 1300 platform, is designed to provide excellent power and region-wide connectivity at its nominal orbital location of 120 degrees East. With 28 high-powered C-band transponders and a design life of 15 years, AsiaSat 6 offers two beams, one global beam and one regional beam for a broad range of video distribution and broadband network services in the Asia-Pacific region.
