Boeing Stacks Two Satellites to Launch as a Pair.

ABS and Eutelsat are first customers for all-electric propulsion satellites.

Boeing has successfully mated two 702SP (small platform) satellites in a stacked configuration in preparation for the first-ever conjoined satellite launch. The milestone is a significant step towards the early 2015 launch of the satellites ABS-3A and Eutelsat 115 West B, the first-ever all-electric propulsion satellites scheduled to enter service.

The 702SP, designed by Boeing Network & Space Systems satellite businesses and Phantom Works, features an all-electric propulsion system and a joint configuration for a dual-manifest launch. By eliminating chemical propulsion and using only electric propulsion, the 702SP platform offers a significant mass advantage that translates to increased revenue-generating payload performance and launch vehicle savings to customers.

ABS 3A will be located at 3 west and has a strong European Beam. Middle East beam seems quite focused but having said that so does Eutelsat 7west. But can be received in Europe.

From this info looks like the satellite will only be serving Africa in the Ku band & the Middle East + Central America in the C band,
No reception possible in Europe on either footprint so far published.

These are footprints of existing ABS-3, not of the new ABS-3A.
Edit: Marcus was faster!

Thanks for the feedback that looks better news my error sorry :)
Lets hope they use the European beam more than Yahsat-1A 52.5°E use their European beam :(

Wonder why so much is firing off into the Atlantic?

ABS site: "The satellite will support VSAT services, TV distribution, IP trunking, cellular backhaul and maritime services".
Such Atlantic beams (sometimes called mobility beams) are wanted for internet or TV aboard airplanes and ships.

Launch on 17 Feb 2015 for Eutelsat 115W B & ABS-3A Asia Broadcast Satellite Falcon 9 v1.1 SLC-40, Florida

This marks SpaceX's first dual comm. satellite launch, of Eutelsat 115W B & ABS-3A.

The satellites, built by Boeing, use Solar Electric Propulsion, making it feasible to fit both on a single Falcon 9 and removing the need for weighty Hydrazine.

It's getting awfully crowded up there. 1W, 3W, 4W, 5W, 7W, 8W ... they all have to either have footprints firing off into different directions or be careful with frequency allocations.

Some strange info here about both satellites: http://licensing.fcc.gov/ibfsweb/ib.page.FetchPN?report_key=1074798
Suggesting ABS-3 (sic) will go to 75°E first, but how can possibly be tested there, with ABS-2 operational already with overlapping up/downlink frequency bands?
And Eutelsat 115 West B will first go to 114.9°E, then later to 114.9°W. o_O

Last August ABS 2 faced a serious anomaly, so ABS 3A will move to 75E for testing ? for service ? for backup ?

A back-up satellite is scheduled for launch later in 2015.

Today's FCC public notice makes more sense, ABS-3A will go directly to 3°W.
Telemetry/beacons on 4194.5 and 4197.0.
