Breaking News :  Measat 3b Scheduled To Launch On Sept. 12
MEASAT Global Berhad (“MEASAT”) announced today the MEASAT-3b satellite has been scheduled for launch on 12 September MYT (11 September GFT) from the European Spaceport in Kourou, French Guiana.

“MEASAT is pleased to be able to confirm the revised MEASAT-3b launch date,” said Paul Brown-Kenyon, Chief Executive Officer, MEASAT Satellite Systems Sdn. Bhd. “Once operational, MEASAT-3b will be a key contributor to the Asian pay TV landscape, supporting Direct-To-Home television platforms serving more than 18 million households.”

MEASAT-3b’s 48 high-powered Ku-band transponders will expand Direct-To-Home and VSAT services across Malaysia, India, Indonesia and Australia. MEASAT-3b will be co-located with MEASAT-3 and MEASAT-3a at 91.5°E, creating the region’s most powerful and robust orbital location.

Optus 10 ready for launch on Ariane 5 Flight VA218
Friday 29 August 2014

Arianespace has announced that the Optus 10 spacecraft has undergone its fit-check and fueling for a dual-passenger mission targeted for September 11 from French Guiana on Arianespace's Ariane 5 Flight VA218 mission. Optus 10 will be the sixth satellite launched by Arianespace for Optus and is outfitted for direct TV broadcast, internet connectivity, telephone and data transmission services across Australia and New Zealand. It will be joined on Arianespace's next mission by the MEASAT-3b relay platform, which will expand DTH broadcasting and VSAT services across Malaysia, India, Indonesia and Australia for Malaysian-based MEASAT.


This is very critical because , earlier Optus 10 test failure forced to postpone the launch date.
