Measat confirms 3 new satellites

Measat says it is on schedule to launch three new satellites over the next two years. Measats SVP/space systems development Ali R Ebadi said its Africasat-1a craft was scheduled for launch in February next year, followed by Measat-3b at the end-2013 and Measat3C in 2014.

We continuously invest in satellite capacity to support the rapidly increasing needs of clients, particularly direct-to-home (DTH) service, he said in an interview with journalists at last weeks CommunicAsia show in Singapore.

Measat initially expanded its satellite network into Africa in early 2008 with the commissioning of the Africasat-1 satellite, formerly known as MEASAT-1. As for MEASAT-3b, Measat was in the final stages of negotiations with the Defence Ministry on specifically designed mobile communications together with DTH broadcast service for Malaysia, India and Indonesia coverage.

Measats anchor broadcaster is DTH operator Astro, which is seeking to boost its coverage into India and other parts of South-east Asia.

Frank McKenna, President of ILS said, The successful launches of AsiaSat 5 in 2009 and AsiaSat 7 in 2011 enabled the timely expansion of AsiaSats service offerings across the Asia-Pacific region. We are honored to play a key role in AsiaSats growth over the years and fully support AsiaSats fleet expansion programme.
