ANGOSAT is the name of a project that is an integral part of the National Space Program (PEN), with the main focus on ensuring the construction, launch and operation of Angolan geostationary satellites, which provide opportunities for expansion of satellite communication services (Internet), radio, telephony and television broadcasting), all over the national territory and provide revenue collection.
To be launched in 2022, ANGOSAT-2 will cover all of Africa and part of Europe. Its construction started on April 24, 2018, to offset the investment made in the construction of ANGOSAT-1, in orbit since December 2017, but with no signal, until the present date.
