RE: NSS 11 (108.2E)
GE American Communications And Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications Form Joint Venture To Bring Advanced Satellite Services To Asia Pacific

PRINCETON, NJ, August 11th, 1998 -- Two of the industry leading satellite service providers GE American Communications (GE Americom) and the newly formed Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications today agreed to form a joint venture to deploy a new satellite system that will serve the communications needs of the burgeoning Asia Pacific region. The two companies will each own an equal share of the new venture. The new spacecraft, called GE-1A, will provide a wide range of services including television distribution and wideband internet applications to businesses and consumers in Asia Pacific. Based on a geostationary, Ku-band design, the new satellite powerful transponder capabilities enable a wider range of users to receive satellite signals through receiving antennas as small as 65 centimeters.

"The GE-1A venture will allow us to serve over 80% of the world population when combined with our significant European, North American and South American presence," said John F. Connelly, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of GE Americom. "Our customers around the world as well as those based in the Asian region will welcome the new and powerful connectivity of GE-1A. We will be opening Asian regional offices to deliver the highest quality customer service," he added.

"In Asia-Pacific, where terrestrial facilities are either unavailable or cost-prohibitive, broadcast service providers now have another option for meeting the region growing demand for direct-to-home services," said John V. Sponyoe, Chief Executive Officer of Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications. "Satellite communications, and the powerful transponder capabilities of the GE-1A, provide the best solution for expanding universal access to communications within Asia Pacific and other capacity-strapped markets," he said.

The GE-1A satellite takes advantage of Lockheed Martin award-winning A2100 bus, offering the most powerful transponder capabilities currently operating in the marketplace. The satellite main coverage will be targeted to the fast developing Indian, Northeast Asian, Chinese and Philippine regions.

Mission Control

Friday, September 29, 2000

A Russian Proton rocket is on the launch pad for a weekend blastoff carrying an American-made communications satellite that will serve Asia. The GE-1A spacecraft will be lofted into geosynchronous transfer orbit on Sunday for Americom Asia-Pacific, a joint endeavor between GE Americom and Lockheed Martin Global Telecommunications.

Liftoff is scheduled for 2200 GMT (6 p.m. EDT) from pad 23 of Launch Complex 81 of the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. The available launch window extends about 10 minutes.

This satellite-delivery mission will be managed under the auspices of International Launch Services -- the U.S./Russian venture that globally markets Proton and Atlas rockets. This will be ILS' 17th Proton launch since 1996.

Proton's three stages will fire for the first 10 minutes of the launch, deploying the Block DM upper stage and attached GE-1A satellite into a parking orbit 116-nautical miles above Earth. The Block DM will later fire two times to propel the satellite cargo into an orbit with a high point of 20,870 nautical miles, low point of 90 nautical miles and inclined 26.46 degrees to the equator. Spacecraft separation from the upper stage to complete the launch is expected six-hours, 41 minutes into flight.

In the days following the launch, GE-1A will fire its own kick motor to arrive in circular geostationary orbit, parking at 108 degrees East longitude.

The broadcasting satellite, built by Lockheed Martin Space Systems, will provide direct-to-home television and broadband data network services to China, Northeast Asia, the Philippines and India. The 7,831-pound craft carries a payload of 28 Ku-band transponders on three beams that will allow 8 to 16 to cover Greater China, 8 to 16 to cover Northeast Asia/Philippines and up to 8 for South Asia.

KT Selects AAP-1 For Full Gospel Church Service In South Korea

SINGAPORE, June 4, 2002 -- Americom Asia-Pacific, LLC (AAP) announced today that KT, the largest telecommunications operator in Korea, has signed a long-term partial transponder agreement on AAP-1 for the digital distribution of Full Gospel Church in South Korea. Beginning in June, KT expects to deliver the religious programming channel to over 200 Church-based receive sites in South Korea, but will be expanding the distribution beyond the Korean peninsula into other Asian countries.

The AAP offer to KT is a complete service package on AAP-1 that includes high-powered Ku-band capacity facilitating the use of small downlink antennas at the Church locations and wide regional coverage - both of which are critical to KT's near-term and long-term programming plans for the Full Gospel Church channel. In preparing to support the distribution of the new religious channel with KT, AAP also cooperated with Dong-In, a recognized Korean satellite equipment systems integrator, to provide local site support on the ground.

Elias Zaccack, AAP's Managing Director, said, "We are pleased that KT has chosen AAP-1 as the satellite platform for the distribution of the Full Gospel Church video broadcasting service. This latest agreement with KT further demonstrates their confidence in the quality and reliability of our satellite service. AAP-1 is quickly becoming recognized as a powerful satellite platform in the Asia-Pacific region upon which we are building a formidable neighborhood for broadcasters, telecommunication companies, DTH networks, and IP service providers."

AAP-1, a powerful Ku-band satellite, is located at 108.2(0) E.L. and provides service via three beams to greater China, south Asia, including India, and northeast Asia and the Philippines. The spacecraft features 28 active 36 MHz Ku-band transponders with 120 watt TWTAs. The AAP-1 satellite is an A2100AX spacecraft, manufactured by Lockheed Martin Commercial Space Systems, with a minimum useful life of 15 years. AAP-1 delivers Internet applications, VSAT, data and telecommunications services, cable and broadcast programming.

Americom Asia-Pacific (AAP) is a 50/50 joint venture company of Lockheed Martin (LM), which delivers secure, reliable advanced-technology products and services to help enterprise customers leverage their telecommunications and information technology assets, and SES AMERICOM, one of the world's pioneers in specialized, satellite-based distribution services.

RE: NSS 11 (108.2E)
AAP-1 Used To Provide Internet Connection To The Top Of The World

PRINCETON, April 23, 2003 -- The first-ever Internet cafe at the Mt. Everest base camp went live last week using space segment on AMERICOM ASIA-PACIFIC's AAP-1 satellite to establish the connection between the cafe and the Internet. AMERICOM ASIA-PACIFIC, a 50/50 joint venture company of Lockheed Martin and SES AMERICOM, donated bandwidth on the satellite to help make the cafe possible.

The Internet cafe is largely the result of the vision of Tsering Gyalzen, a native Sherpa and grandson of one of the Sherpas who participated in the 1953 first conquest of Mt. Everest. The path between the cafe and the outside world consists of a WiFi connection between the base camp located on a glacier and a satellite earth station installed within two miles of the camp at the height of 16,000 feet. The AAP-1 satellite then connects the earth station to a teleport in Taipei, which in turn, is connected to the Internet backbone via fiber. Although Tsering Gyalzen is the main force behind the cafe, its existence was made possible through the support and contributions of the Sagarmatha Pollution Control Committee, AMERICOM ASIA-PACIFIC, Cisco Systems, Teleport Access Services, Inc., and WorldLink Communications Pvt. Ltd. of Nepal.

Deepak Mathur, AMERICOM ASIA-PACIFIC Managing Director, said, "We are delighted and honored we are able to participate in this project. Since we first became aware of its existence, everything about the cafe has intrigued us: from the entrepreneurial spirit of Tsering to the mystic nature of Mt. Everest to showcasing some of the unique benefits and capabilities of satellite communications technology to working with a number of esteemed companies to conquer the mountain once again."

Located at 108.2(degree) E.L., AAP-1 is a high-powered, all Ku-band FSS satellite with coverage of China, North-East Asia, the Philippines and India. The satellite includes up to 28 transponders with 36 MHz bandwidth and is suitable for broadcast program distribution, DTH applications, broadband data networks and VSAT applications.

About AMERICOM ASIA-PACIFIC

Americom Asia-Pacific (AAP) is a joint venture company of Lockheed Martin, a world-class manufacturer of communication satellites, and SES AMERICOM, a pioneer and leading provider of global satellite communications services currently operating 15 spacecraft in orbital positions providing service throughout the Americas, across Europe, over the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, and throughout Asia.

Formed in 1998, AMERICOM ASIA-PACIFIC provides high-powered capacity and state-of-the-art services to programmers, telcos, carriers, ICPs and ISPs -- and their customers -- throughout the Asia-Pacific region via the AAP-1 satellite (formerly GE-1A).

WORLDSAT Signs KT Corp For Northeast Asian Satellite Services; Regional Telecom Expanding Networks & Solutions On WS-1 Satellite

SINGAPORE, May 12, 2004 -- WORLDSAT, a wholly owned subsidiaryof SES AMERICOM, an SES GLOBAL Company; Luxembourg and KT Corporation (KT), Korea's leading telecommunications services provider and an operator of a satellite fleet in the Asia-Pacific region, announced today that they have entered into a long term framework agreement to provide services through several high-powered Ku-band transponders on WORLDSAT-1 (formerly known as AAP-1) satellite.

"We have a long history with KT Corporation that began with our preparations for the launch of this satellite, they have been a regional ally and key customer as they have extended their impact in the region with DTH, VSAT and other satellite-based applications. We are delighted to expand our relationship with them on the Northeast Asian beam of WORLDSAT-1 (WS-1)," said WORLDSAT President, Andreas Georghiou. He continued, "This agreement is consistent with our strategy to cooperate with key regional operators combining their knowledge and experience in the local markets with WORLDSAT's global assets."

"Even as we prepare for the launch KoreaSat 5 in early 2006, our customers' bandwidth requirements are projected to continue growing and the high-powered bandwidth and coverage of WS-1 is a perfect fit for their applications. WS-1's orbital location will minimize the time and effort required to re-point antennas operating on Koreasat-3, and offers the additional prospect of acting as a back-up satellite to KT's fleet" said KT Manager, Wangjoo Han.

RE: NSS 11 (108.2E)
ViaSat To Provide Airtel Enterprise Services With LinkStar Satellite Network For Satellite Services In India

NORCROSS, Ga., August 17, 2005 -- ViaSat is supplying a LinkStar broadband network to Airtel Enterprise Services, the enterprise arm of India's leading telecom group, Bharti Tele-Ventures Ltd. (BTVL), for shared-hub satellite communication services in India. Airtel is planning to offer a range of networking services, from low-rate point-of-sale data to broadband virtual private networks and Internet access. LinkStar VSAT options for network access and bandwidth management make it an efficient choice for all types of traffic. The Airtel network includes a LinkStar hub installation in Bangalore and an expected delivery of 5,000 remote VSATs during the first year.

The Airtel shared hub services will cater to many customer segments. Bank ATMs, stock brokers, and gaming applications need fast access and low-rate transactional data. Enterprise customers look for high-speed, secure client-server applications that extend their corporate networks for virtual private networks, enterprise-wide resource or customer management systems, and Internet access. The LinkStar satellite network includes enterprise-level features such as DiffServ QOS and multi-label protocol switching support that enable many customers to share a single VSAT hub, while keeping their data separate and secure from other users. ViaSat dynamic bandwidth allocation increases or decreases data rates on-the-fly to adjust to each customer and use the available satellite bandwidth in the most efficient way.

"We have chosen ViaSat because they have number of advanced VSAT technologies and a mature in-country support operation," said Airtel Enterprise Services CEO, Mr. Rajiv Sharma.

Ku-band transponders on the SES Americom AAP-1 satellite will carry the network traffic. Data rates will begin at 256 and 512 kbps on the inbound and 5 Mbps on the outbound (hub to remotes). The system can support up to 3.3 Mbps uploads from remote sites and up to 45 Mbps downloads from the hub.

The advantages of the LinkStar VSAT system can be traced to its versatility. The system is cost-effective for a full spectrum of applications, from low speed, quick-turnaround retail transactions to broadband multimedia applications. The LinkStar system can operate in a proprietary configuration from ViaSat or according to the DVB-RCS international standard.

GSAT Signs New Capacity On SES Satellites NSS-11 And SES-9 To Meet Pay-TV Boom In The Philippines

Luxembourg, August 5, 2013 - SES announced today that the Philippine direct-to-home (DTH) satellite TV provider Global Satellite (GSAT) has contracted its fourth transponder on NSS-11, cementing SES’ orbital position of 108.2 degrees East as one of Asia's leading video neighbourhoods. The multi-year deal will see the transfer of current capacity usage by GSAT from NSS-11 to SES-9, currently scheduled for launch in 2015. When launched, SES-9 will be the largest SES satellite dedicated to the Asia-Pacific region. The new spacecraft will be providing expansion capacity for DTH, enterprise, mobility and government services across the region.

GSAT, the satellite division of First United Broadcasting Corp (FUBC), launched its DTH service in 2008 on the NSS-11 Ku-band satellite, providing subscribers with access to an improved mix of international programmes including English, Mandarin, Korean, Tagalog, Japanese and Spanish channels. With this additional capacity, GSAT will be offering 12 high definition (HD) channels and 47 standard definition (SD) channels to more than 200,000 subscribers across the Philippine archipelago.

Philip J. Chien, President and CEO of FUBC, said, "Our ability to offer highly reliable DTH satellite TV to our growing base of subscribers in the Philippines is largely due to the comprehensive footprints of NSS-11, and, from 2015, SES-9. We are confident that SES’ expertise will enable us to grow in our market and increase both the quality and quantity of channels in our pay-TV offerings."

Deepak Mathur, Senior Vice President Commercial, Asia-Pacific and the Middle East at SES, said, "We are delighted to confirm that GSAT, our long-term customer on NSS-11, will become a key anchor customer on SES-9. At SES, we are investing in new satellites to make sure that our customers enjoy business continuity, as well as delivering vital capacity to support their growth in some of the most dynamic media markets in the world."
