Amazonas Nexus belongs to Spanish satellite telecommunications operator HISPASAT. The new geostationary high-throughput satellite (HTS) will replace Amazonas 2, stationed at 61º West, affording increased capacity to enable HISPASAT to reach new customers and markets with high-capacity mobility services for the air and maritime transport sectors, among others.

The advanced design, HTS capacity and versatility of Amazonas Nexus make it the most efficient satellite in HISPASAT’s fleet. Thales Alenia Space, the joint venture between Thales (67%) and Leonardo (33%),  led design, construction and testing of the satellite as prime contractor, and is in charge of its in-orbit commissioning.
