The Bolivian Space Agency (ABE) is preparing the launch of a second communications satellite between 2019 and 2020, reports local daily La Razon, citing ABE director Ivan Zambrana. The project dubbed Tupac Katari 2 (TKSAT 2), will cost in the region of USD 100 million, said Zambrana, adding that the TKSAT 1 satellite launched in 2014 had surpassed expectations, collecting USD 33 million in revenue over the past two years. The total USD 300 million investment would be recouped in 15 years, said the ABE director.
