EL SEGUNDO (BNS): Boeing has been awarded a four-satellite contract, with options for four additional satellites, through a joint procurement by Asia Broadcast Satellite (ABS) and Satélites Mexicanos (Satmex).

The first two satellites, ABS-3A and Satmex 7, are scheduled to be delivered together in late 2014 or early 2015. Details about the other two satellites, including names and launch plans, will be announced at a later date, the Company said.

The 702SP 'small platform' satellite is designed to operate in a geostationary orbit. The satellite is compatible with all major launch vehicles, including Falcon 9, Ariane 5, Sea Launch, Proton, Soyuz, Atlas 5 and Delta IV, it said.

Satmex 7 is a hybrid satellite with both C- and Ku-band capacity that will serve Satmex's Latin American customers.
