SSL SELECTED TO PROVIDE SATELLITES FOR SKY PERFECT JSAT

PALO ALTO, Calif. - Space Systems/Loral (SSL) has been selected to provide two communications satellites to SKY Perfect JSAT, a satellite operator based in Japan, with a fleet of 16 satellites. The satellites, JCSAT-15 and JCSAT-16 will be used by SKY Perfect JSAT to meet the growing demand for telecommunications infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region.

Based on SSL's 1300 platform, the two satellites are designed to be used for services such as video distribution, data transfer communications, and back-up service capabilities in Japan and neighboring regions when they launch in 2016. They both operate in Ku-band and provide switching for flexibility.

JCSAT-15 is a 10-kW satellite which will be located at 110° East longitude where it replaces the N-SAT110 satellite currently on orbit. In addition to providing legacy service it will also provide expansion capability and it is designed with the flexibility to adjust its coverage of Japan and the Indian Ocean Region to serve the areas with the highest demand.

JCSAT-16 is an 8.5-kW satellite which is designed to be used at a broad range of orbital locations. When launched it will ensure continuous service and it will be available as a back-up to the existing fleet.

Once a reliable customer of Lockheed Martin, Sky Perfect JSAT has now ordered three consecutive satellites from Space Systems/Loral, including the two new satellites and the JCSAT-14, ordered last year. Developing strong relations with Sky Perfect JSAT is a win for SSL, since the company has a goal of expanding services beyond its core market of providing video transmission to Japanese customers.

JSAT plans to expand its offering in the maritime market, as well as markets outside of Japan, such as Pacific Islands, Russia, and even as far away as the Middle East. JCSAT-14 will provide additional capacity to help JSAT achieve this goal.
