SICRAL 2 is a military satellite that hosts ultra-high frequency and super-high frequency communications instruments for Italian and French defense authorities. It is located at 37 degrees east longitude. SICRAL 2 supplements Italy's previous Sicral series of relay platforms, France's Syracuse satellite communications network, and the joint Franco-Italian Athena-Fidus spacecraft launched last year, which was developed under the same agreement governing the Sicral 2 program. Sicral 2 will provide strategic and tactical communications coverage over domestic territories and in support of foreign operations, and Telespazio retains control of part of the satellite's communications capacity to offer bandwidth to other NATO countries. Sicral 2 replaces the aging Sicral 1 satellite launched aboard an Ariane 4 rocket in 2001.
