SpaceX will launch Boeing built Amos-17, a geostationary communications satellite for Israeli company Spacecom. The satellite will be delivered to GTO from KSC LC-39A or possibly CCAFS SLC-40, and will replace the defunct Amos-5 at 17° E. Amos-17 carries multi-band high throughput and regional beams servicing Africa, Europe and the Middle East. The cost of this launch is covered for Spacecom by SpaceX credit following the Amos-6 incident. A recovery of the booster for this mission is not expected.
