Boeing said Monday ABS-2A is the second all-electric propulsion satellite that the company delivered to ABS following the launch of ABS-3A in 2015.

“We have completed our three-satellite build investment in launching three satellites in three consecutive years, including ABS-2 in 2014 as well as Boeing’s ABS-3A in 2015 and ABS-2A in 2016,” said ABS CEO Tom Choi.

Choi added ABS-2A is built to expand the global satellite operator’s video services for television and direct-to-home businesses.

Boeing said all-electric satellites are designed to be launched as pairs and that ABS-2A was deployed in this manner last year.
