NewSat Grows Mobile Backhaul and Satellite Portfolio in ME

06-26-2012 02:04 PM CET | Media & Telecommunications

Press release from: NewSat

NewSat Ltd., the fast-growing SATCOM and mobile backhaul provider of Australia, closed its newest satellite transmission capacity contract for its first satellite. The client, a South Asian satellite reseller, will use the capacity on Jabiru-1 to serve the Afghan market. With the recent deal, Jabiru-1 has now a pre-sold capacity of almost $600 million. NewSat did not disclose the name of satellite reseller due to commercial and competitive reasons. The payment for the pre-launch contract is expected to be settled in full this month.

Jabiru-1 is now in its sixth month of production. Lockheed Martin is expected to complete the Ka band satellite by 2014. Arianespace has been contracted to launch the satellite.

In April, the company announced the signing of a three-year satellite transmission agreement with a US communications carrier which serves the Middle East. And late last year, NewSat secured expanded frequency allocations for its eight new and existing orbital slots through a deal with Kypros Satellite Limited of Cyprus. This gives the upcoming Jabiru fleet one of the best positions in space to serve high-growth mobile backhaul and SATCOM markets in the ME. 3A Technology, a partner of international telecommunications carrier Mobilink and one of the dominant communications providers in Pakistan, also signed up for Jabiru-1 in 2011.

With two state-of-the-art facilities in Perth and Adelaide, NewSat is poised to grow its military satellite portfolio with the launching of Jabiru. In an interview with SA Defence Business, NewSat VP of Satellite Strategy, Mike Kenneally, said the company has more than 20 contracts with the US Department of Defence. Running a Military Accredited Global Access Point, NewSat provides highly secured satellite , mobile backhaul and teleport services to serve soldiers deployed in the Middle East. The number of teleport engineers in the Adelaide facility could double soon following the launching of Jabiru. The entire Jabiru fleet will enable NewSat to operate with 100% worldwide coverage.

In his recent interview for the 2012 Satellite Special Edition of APB, NewSAT CTO David Ball shared some of the payload specifications of the satellite.

"Jabiru-1 has a trunking payload linking Adelaide, Perth and Cyprus into the Middle East, South Asia and East African region." Also, the satellite will have a 24 multi-spot beam pattern with wide coverage across the regions.

"Our sales pipeline is looking very promising and the sales team is expanding, with offices across the Americas, the Middle East, Asia and Africa," added Ball.
