MEASAT-3d at 91,5° East (Planned)
|Position:||91,5° East (Planned)|
|Manufacturer:||Airbus Defense & Space|
|Expected lifetime:||15+ Years|
MEASAT selected Airbus Defense & Space in May 2019 to build MEASAT-3d, a new communication satellite to replace both MEASAT-3 and MEASAT-3a.
MEASAT-3d will be based on Airbus’ Eurostar-3000 platform and is planned for more than 15 years of operation, MEASAT-3d is designed to have an electrical power of 12 kW.
The satellite will carry C- and Ku-band payloads for direct-to-home (DTH) services and a high-throughput Ka-band payload with multiple user spot beams optimized to deliver high speed broadband communications over Malaysia for internet connectivity. It will also carry an L-band navigation payload for satellite operator KTSat from South Korea as part of the Korea Augmentation Satellite System (KASS).
MEASAT-3d will be launched by launch operator Arianespace and will be colocated at 91.5° East with MEASAT 3a and MEASAT 3b.
