A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket deployed Israeli company Spacecom's Amos-17 satellite to geostationary transfer orbit on August 6.The spacecraft will provide internet and broadcast services to Africa and the Middle East.

Amos-17 will conduct a series of orbit tests before beginning operation and is expected to stay over Africa for 20 years. Nonetheless, SpaceX will attempt to catch one other fairing and has deployed its restoration fleet in anticipation of the upcoming launch. The hope is for the AMOS-17 to reach the highest possible orbit over central Africa.

Engineers changed the suspect valve and performed a second sequence of rockets checks late Saturday (Aug. three).

AMOS-17 is a state-of-the-art multi-band high-throughput satellite, utilizing Boeing's advanced digital processor platform, that will provide reliable and flexible satellite solutions and offer a significant competitive advantage for our customers. However, its last flight helped SpaceX to recover costs on each of the missions flown by the flight-proven power-booster.

Amos-17 is created to provide increased connectivity to customers in Africa as well as parts of Europe, the Middle East, India and China through voice, video and data services.
