The BADR 5 spacecraft will beam programming directly to homes, route broadband Internet connections, enable interactive television and increase the amount of high definition TV that can be sent to Arabsat customers on Earth. Badr 5 is destined to join two older satellites at the orbital slot of 26 degrees East longitude over the equator. Badr 4 also launched on a Proton in November 2006 and Badr 6 rode a European Ariane 5 in July 2008. Badr means "full moon" in Arabic. In addition to providing redundancy to the two other satellites, the advanced Badr 5 will allow an expansion of services. Arabsat says the new craft can transmit more than 700 television channels simultaneously with other communications services like Internet offerings. That craft will be parked alongside the aging Arabsat 2A in geostationary orbit at 30.5 degrees East. Although the new Arabsat 5A is built just like Badr 5, it carries a different communications package featuring 26 C-band and 24 Ku-band transponders for business services and television signal routing.
