AsiaSat-6 is based on Space Systems/Loral 1300 platform, and is designed to provide excellent power and wide C-band coverage over Asia, Australia, Central Asia and the Pacific islands. This new satellite will carry 28 high-powered C-band transponders, with a design life of 15 years. It will be positioned at the 120 degrees East orbital slot, with a global beam and a regional beam to offer enhanced power and look angles for video distribution and broadband network services in the region.

NOTE: SpaceX will NOT attempt a vertical soft-landing test of the rocket for this launch.
