Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN) in association with Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology (KOMINFO) have initiated work on a big new geostationary HTS satellite operating in Ka band to provide satellite internet services to the Indonesian area. At an orbit location of 146 deg east I expect it will have very many tiny spot beams.  It will provide services to Schools, Hospitals and Government offices as well as underserved remote areas. Capacity 150 Gbit/s.

Thales Alenia Space has been engaged as the prime contractor for the project. Two teleports will be constructed, main and backup and many Indonesian staff will be recruited and trained.
