Telkom-3S ready for launch!
Thales Alenia Space won an international call for tenders from the operator PT. Telkom in July 2014. As satellite prime contractor, Thales Alenia Space is in charge of design, testing and in-orbit delivery of the satellite, along with the launch and early orbit phase (LEOP) and in-orbit testing (IOT). Thales Alenia Space also provided parts of the control center and trained engineers and technicians as part of this program.
Telkom-3S is the 80th telecom satellite built on a Spacebus platform (Spacebus 4000B2). Its deployment will enable PT Telkom to increase broadcast capacity, as well as providing key services for businesses, the interconnection of mobile networks and Internet backbones.
