    Comments: APSTAR 7 is a communications satellite designed to broadcast television signals, and provide Internet access and network data solutions across the Asia-Pacific and the Middle East for a Hong Kong-based satellite operator. The satellite is outfitted with 28 C-band and 28 Ku-band transponders to serve China, the Middle East, South Asia, Africa, Australia, and part of Europe. Apstar 7 will broadcast television programming, facilitate corporate data networks, and serve Internet users during its 15-year design life. Apstar 7 was built by Thales Alenia Space of France using an 'ITAR-free' version of the company's Spacebus 4000 C2 satellite platform. Thales avoids U.S. government regulations by not using U.S. satellite components in its ITAR-free satellites. The International Traffic in Arms Regulations, or ITAR, classifies U.S. satellite parts as munitions, preventing their launch on Chinese rockets. Apstar 7 will replace the Apstar 2R spacecraft, which is near the end of its design life.
