WorldSpace Subsidiary to Launch Second Satellite

WorldSpace Subsidiary to Launch Second Satellite

The FCC has given permission to WorldSpace subsidiary AfriStar to launch and operate a replacement satellite, called AfriStar-2, and co-locate it with AfriStar-1 until the first satellite is taken out of service.
The footprint of the new satellite would cover more of Europe than the old satellite and Ondas of Spain filed an objection. Ondas seeks to implement a competing BSS sound system in Europe using satellites and said AfriStar-2 would interfere with its ability to implement a BSS sound system in Europe. The FCC disagreed.
