International Launch Services (ILS) of the United States, Thales Alenia Space of France, and Al Yah Satellite Communications Co. (Yahsat) of the United Arab Emirates have jointly announced an agreement to launch a Yahsat spacecraft on a Proton Breeze M vehicle.
A European consortium of Thales Alenia Space and Astrium was contracted in August of 2007 for the overall Yahsat communication system and is building two large Yahsat multipurpose satellites, based on the Astrium Eurostar 3000 bus. Yahsat, which is owned by Mubadala Development Company, will provide commercial and government services across the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Southwest Asia. Thales Alenia Space was contracted for the Proton launch on behalf of Yahsat.
Yahsat entered into a supply contract to deliver a fully integrated satellite system with EADS Astrium and Thales Alenia Space in August 2007 worth US$1.7 billion. As per the program, Yahsat satellite systems will provide solutions for internet connectivity via satellite, wide area networks and television transmission services, in particular for high-definition television (HDTV).
