Spacecom estimates that the cost of launching, insuring and one year's operation of the Amos 6 will be $85 million. The company has to pick a launch company. Spacecom said that it will seek financing for the Amos 6 from IAI and foreign sources.
Spacecom added that it plans to sign $95 million in services contracts even before the Amos 6's launch, of which $20 million will be paid during the satellite's construction and the rest during its operational period.
The Amos 6 will replace the Amos 2, whose service period will end in 2016. Spacecom said that the Amos 6 would broaden the range and scope of satellite communications services for the company's clients in the Middle East and Europe.
