Australian satellite company, NewSat, has boosted pre-launch contracts for Jabiru satellite capacity to $US601m with the addition of a three-year agreement with a South Asian satellite reseller.
The $US30.29m purchase is for transmission capacity over Afghanistan. Payment will be completed in full and is expected before the end of June.
NewSat has again declined to reveal the customer’s name.
“Afghanistan continues to have an insatiable appetite for communications, and our high throughput Ka-band satellite capacity is hitting a sweet spot with our customers in the region,” NewSat founder and CEO, Adrian Ballintine, said.
“Lockheed Martin is now six months into the Jabiru-1 satellite build and on schedule for a 2013 launch with Arianespace,” Ballintine said.
