THE FIRST BROADBAND SATELLITE IN INDONESIA

Satelit Nusantara Satu

Nusantara Satu (PSN VI) is an Indonesian GEO communication satellite owned by Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN). The satellite orbits at  146 East longitude and moves parallel with the earth’s rotation.

Nusantara Satu Satellite is the first Indonesian Broadband Satellite that uses High Throughput Satellite (HTS) technology with greater bandwidth capacity to provide broadband access all over Indonesia.

This satellite has 26 C-band transponders, 12 Extended C-band transponders and 8 Ku-band spot beams with a total bandwidth capacity up to 15 Gbps with coverage area throughout the Indonesian archipelago.

Nusantara Satu was made in the United States of America by satellite manufacturer Space System Loral (SSL) and was launched in the Cape Canaveral, USA in February 2019 using the Falcon-9 rocket provided by SpaceX.

Nusantara Satu Satellite Innovation

The first Indonesian broadband satellite with HTS technology and Electric Propulsion


High Throughput Satellite

High Throughput Satellite (HTS) technology divides its coverage area into several spot beams using a more efficient frequency assignment (frequency re-use) which produces greater bandwidth capacity towards the same spectrum allocation than conventional satellites.

Electric Propulsion

The Electric Propulsion technology used in Nusantara Satu satellite allowed for weight-savings of more than a thousand-kilogram. This technology also allows the satellite to preserve fuel in order to optimize fuel management and extend longevity.

Coverage Area

Covers all parts of Indonesia and as far as the Asia Pacific
