Default ABS 3A & Eutelsat 115 West B successfully launched

SpaceX has successfully launched a Falcon 9 rocket carrying two satellites carrying ABS 3A & Eutelsat 115 West B

The SpaceX team has successfully launched another Falcon 9 rocket. The craft launched as scheduled, at 10:50PM ET, from Cape Canaveral, and is set to make a "soft landing" into the sea after it has carried its payload beyond the Earth's atmosphere. The rocket is unlikely to be recovered.

The rocket is carrying two all-electric commercial satellites built by Boeing. The satellites are from the French satellite provider Eutelsat and Asia Broadcast Satellite. According to Spaceflight Now, the satellites will rely entirely on energy-efficient electric ion engines to maintain their orbit for up to two decades.

ABS-3A will be located at 3°W connecting the Americas, Europe, Africa and the Middle East
It will extend ABS' C and Ku-band coverage into the Atlantic Ocean Region
Three C-band beams will cover the Americas, the Middle East and Africa along with a global beam
Four Ku-band beams will cover Europe, MENA, South Africa and the Americas

The satellite will support VSAT services, TV distribution, IP trunking, cellular backhaul and maritime services,
