Mário de Oliveira revealed that Angola is ready to start preparing the commercialization of Angosat-2 satellite services. In the field of telemedicine, the official added that the province of Huíla will be among the first to benefit, taking into account the communication between the Central Hospital of Lubango and three other municipalities with reference hospital units, a way of suppressing the shortage of medical specialists.

The official, who was speaking this Friday in Lubango, Huíla province, clarified that Angosat-2 has a transmission capacity seven times greater than that of Angosat-1, which had 16 retransmitters in Bank C and six in Band KU.

According to the minister, who was speaking to the press after the inauguration of the automated station for measuring meteorological parameters at altitude called "ROBOTSONDA", at Mukanka airport, a testing phase is currently under way, and "within a few days it will begin to make services available to customers".

Mário de Oliveira also added that the satellite is working normally, "as it was designed" and preparing for the installation of 'remote sites' in some provinces of the country, still in this scope.

The satellite is monitored and operated from the Satellite Monitoring Centre, installed in Funda (Luanda), which is already in operation.

Previously, the minister had noted the success of the project in the first stage after launch, also stating that "the satellite is flying under its own conditions", and is sending telemetry signals that correspond to nominal standards.

Angosat-2 is a High Transmission Rate (HTS) satellite, with a total weight of two tons, prepared to provide 13 gigabytes in each illuminated region (zones within the reach of the satellite signal).

The satellite will cover the African continent, with greater emphasis on the southern region, and a significant part of southern Europe, says a statement from the ministry to which VerAngola had access.
