Vietnam's VNPT plans to launch new orbital satellite by 2012

07 сентября 2009

State-run Vietnam Posts and Telecoms Group, or VNPT, said it is considering purchasing, hiring or launching a new satellite by 2012.

The total investment for the Vinasat-2 telecommunications satellite will be between $290 million and $350 million, VNPT said in a statement.

VNPT said it has been working with foreign partners on the issue, without giving further details.

The satellite, to be placed in the orbital slot 107 East, will be Vietnam's second orbital satellite, it said.

Vietnam launched its first satellite from a space port in South America in April 2008.

The $300 million Vinasat-1, built by the US's Lockheed Martin, is expected to have a lifespan of between 15 and 20 years.

It is equipped with 20 36-MHz transmitters that can provide data, internet, television and radio coverage to Southeast Asia, eastern China, India, North Korea, Japan, Australia and Hawaii.
