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. Most likely it has been cancelled.
