Apstar-7 is a Chinese correspondences satellite which is worked by APT Satellite as a feature of the Apstar framework. It was sent off in 2012 as a substitution for the Apstar 2R satellite sent off in 1997.

Apstar-7 was built by Thales Alenia Space, and depends on the Spacebus-4000C2 satellite transport. The satellite had a mass at send off of 5,054 kilograms (11,142 lb), and is supposed to work for something like 15 years.[1] It is situated in geostationary circle at a longitude of 76.5 degrees East, and conveys 56 transponders with a working force of 8.4 kilowatts;  28 working in the C band and offering types of assistance to Asia, Africa, eastern and focal Europe and Australia and the other 28 working in the Ku band, covering Africa, the Middle East, the People’s Republic of China, and Taiwan  The satellite’s sunlight based exhibits produce 11.4 kilowatts of force.

Apstar-7 was sent off by a Long March 3B/E transporter rocket, flying from Launch Complex 2 at the Xichang Satellite Launch Center. Takeoff occurred at 10:27 UTC on 31 March 2012, with the rocket putting the satellite into a supersynchronous move orbit.
