PALO ALTO, Calif. - Space Systems/Loral (SSL) 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. When launched in early 2017, PSN VI will be located at 146 degrees East longitude. Based on SSL's 1300 platform, the satellite is designed to deliver service for at least 15 years.

Financial details of the transaction were not reported by the parties. Nor were specific technical details, such as launch mass and transponder count.

The deal is part of a burst of satellite orders coming from Indonesia recently. BRI Bank ordered the BRISat in April this year from SSL. And in July, PT Telekomunikasi ordered Telkom-3S from Thales Alenia Space. Satellite is an effective way of providing connectivity in Indonesia, since the country stretches across thousands of islands. Laying cable and fiber optic lines can be expensive and time consuming.
