PALO ALTO, Calif. – November 19, 2014 — Space Systems/Loral (SSL), a leading provider of commercial satellites, today announced that the contract award previously reported on October 29, 2014, was for the Indonesian satellite operator, PT Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN). The commercial communications satellite, named PSN VI, will provide service throughout South East Asia and includes a High Throughput Satellite (HTS) payload for service in Indonesia.With both C-band and Ku-band transponders, PSN VI will be used for voice and data communications, broadband Internet, and video distribution throughout the Indonesian archipelago. PSN is the first private satellite telecommunications company in Indonesia and a leading Asian provider of a full range of satellite-based telecommunication services.“PSN has a charter to use satellites to provide innovative communications solutions that help improve lives and support economic growth in remote regions,” said John Celli, president of SSL. “We are very glad to have the opportunity to help PSN further this endeavor by providing, not just a satellite, but a package of services to support its business goals, including launch.”When launched in early 2017, PSN VI will be located at 146 degrees East longitude. Based on SSL’s proven 1300 satellite platform, which provides the flexibility for a broad range of applications and technology advances, the satellite is designed to deliver service for 15 years or longer.
