SupremeSat 2

SupremeSat 2 [CAST]

The Sri Lanka Government has authorized SupremeSat (Pvt.) Ltd. in May 2012 to order the country's first communications satellite, to be named SupremeSat 2 (originally SupremeSat 3).

The SupremeSat has entered into an exclusive partnership agreement with China's state owned China Great Wall Industry Corporation (CGWIC) for the design, manufacturing and launching of the satellite and also to secure the marketing facilities of many other satellites owned and operated by CGWIC and the China Satellites Communications Corporation.

The satellite was to be built on CAST's DFH-4 Bus and was to be launched in 2018 on a CZ-3B/G2 launch vehicle. In 2016 it became known, that the project was put on hold due to poor market conditions.
