AMAZONAS 3 is a geostationary satellite to be stationed at 61 degrees west longitude, where the satellite will broadcast direct-to-home television programming, support telephone networks, and provide broadband Internet services. The 61 degrees west location enables the craft to reach customers in Latin America, Europe and North Africa, according to Madrid-based Hispasat, operator of Amazonas 3. Hispasat and Hispamar, its Brazilian subsidiary, will use Amazonas 3 to help bridge the digital divide afflicting millions of Latin Americans struggling to obtain modern communications capabilities. Amazonas 3 features the first Ka-band payload for broadband service in Latin America, allowing users to enjoy more flexible, interactive multimedia programming. The spacecraft was manufactured by Space Systems/Loral of Palo Alto, Calif., for a 15-year mission. It carries 33 Ku-band and 19 C-band transponders, plus nine Ka-band spot beams.
