Following on after Amos 3 (due to start at 4W in late 2007) 3 extra craft are planned.
Amos 4 will slot initially at 70E for the asiatic market in 2009
Amos 5 is due in service 2012
Amos 6 is expected in service around 2016.
Initial orbital slots for the 2 latter birds havent been released yet.
AMOS-3, a new member of the AMOS fleet, under construction, scheduled to be launched by the end of 2007. AMOS-3 will be co-located at 4W, eventually replacing AMOS-1. AMOS-3 will enhance the existing AMOS platform with additional capacity, expanded coverage areas and advanced capabilities such as Ka-band and steerable beams.

AMOS-4, Spacecom next satellite program, positioning the satellite at a new orbital location, for further applications, service offerings and coverage areas.
E aceeasi chestie ca si cu fregatele britanice : Mos**** le arunca de rele , Spacecom le iau de bune ...
