In about 90 days, the country will start using the services of Angosat-2, which was successfully launched this Wednesday and is already in orbit.


The information was provided by the minister of Telecommunications, Information Technologies and Social Communication, Mário Oliveira, who said that between January and February of next year, his services will start to be made available.

After completing the 36,000 kilometer journey until its stabilization, Angosat-2 will meet the conditions for transmission and availability of its services, explained Mário Oliveira, quoted by Angop.

Speaking after the launch, the minister also took the opportunity to inform that for now the telemetry information and trajectory patterns presented by Angosat-2 are "excellent".

Cited by Angop, the holder of the Telecommunications, Information Technology and Social Communication section also referred that the device is performing a normal flight on the way to its determined geospatial location.

He also added that a technical meeting will soon take place in order to learn more about his journey.

In addition, Mário Oliveira also took the opportunity to express his satisfaction at the successful launch, considering that the services of this device will improve the country's telecommunications.

The Russian Proton-M rocket launched the satellite this Wednesday (October 12), at 8:00 pm local time (4:00 pm in Angola), at the Baikonur aerospace station, in Kazakhstan, and Angosat-2 is already in orbit.

According to Angop, this new satellite has a useful life of 15 years and has a transmission capacity seven times greater than Angosat-1, which after entering orbit in 2017 lost contact with Earth.
