APStar 9 [APT]
APT Satellite signed in November 2013 a contract with China Great Wall Industry Corp. (CGWIC) of Beijing for the construction and launch of the APStar-9 high power communications satellite.
APStar 9 was built on CAST's DFH-4 platform and features 32 transponders in C-band and 14 in Ku-band. The satellite has a 15 year life time. It was launched in 2015 on a Chinese CZ-3B/G2 booster.
TS Global Network (TSGN), a Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) connectivity provider in Malaysia, has entered an agreement with APT Satellite Company Limited to invest in a designated payload on the operator’s Apstar 9 satellite. The payload, dubbed MySat 1, will provide C-band transponder capacity for the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Asia-Pacific markets.
