BRIsat

BRIsat 1 [SSL]

The Indonesian BRIsat (Bank Rakyat Indonesia Satellite) is a communications satellite for banking purposes to be built by Space Systems/Loral for Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI).

The bank has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Space System/Loral, LLC (SSL) from US and ArianeSpace from France in April 2014. BRIsat will be built on SSL's SSL-1300 bus carrying 45 transponders, which will cover areas in Indonesia, ASEAN, North east of Asia, some Pacific area and West Australia. From its orbital position at 150.5 East, it will deliver highly reliable communications services to BRI's 11,000 bank branches across the Indonesian archipelago.

The satellite is to be launched in 2016 by a Ariane-5ECA rocket from Kourou.
