Hispasat, S.A is the operating company for a number of Spanish communications satellites that cover the Americas, Europe and North Africa from orbital positions 30° West and 61° West. It was formed in 1989 and its activities include provision of communication services in the commercial and government sectors (corporate networks, advanced telecommunications services, telephony, videoconferencing, etc.). Hispasat’s fleet of satellites broadcast more than 1,250 television channels and radio stations to more than 30 million homes, as well as providing services such as broadband to mobile telephones and landlines.
The first Hispasat satellite sent into orbit was Hispasat 1A, which was launched on 11 September 1992 on board an Ariane 4 rocket from the Guiana Space Centre near Kourou in French Guiana. It was put into geostationary orbit at 30° west at a height of 36,000 km, which is the location of all their subsequent satellites serving Spain and Europe.
The Amazonas satellites (61° west) were inaugurated in 2004 with the launch of Amazonas 1, which serves the American market (mainly Latin America). Amazonas 2 was launched on 1 October 2009 and Amazonas 3 7 February 2013 replacing Amazonas 1, which was moved to a new position at 36° west in September 2013. Amazonas 4A was launched on 22 March 2014. This fleet of satellites will be augmented with Amazonas 4B in 2015. A fifth generation of this satellite series, Amazonas 5, is scheduled for launching in 2017. The development of Amazonas 5 has been awarded to Space Systems/Loral.
