In December 2004 Antrix and MEASAT signed an agreement for the procurement of the MEASAT 4 satellite by Malaysia. Within the overall framework of cooperation of the Joint Venture, Antrix has proposed building and launching MEASAT-4 satellite. The technical and financial aspects have been mostly agreed upon and discussions are continuing over certain regulatory processes.
The status of the satellite is unclear. Possibly it has been cancelled.
