mu Space issues proposal request to build a satellite covering Asia-Pacific

 

mu Space Corp has approved the release of a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a manufacturer to build the company’s satellite with coverage spanning across Asia-Pacific.

 

The high throughput satellite will be on a geostationary orbit (GEO) location at 50.5-degree East, an orbital slot secured on a recent agreement between mu Space and SES, the world’s leading satellite operator. It is expected to provide broadband and Internet of Things (IoT) service via satellite, and will have a lifespan of at least 15 years.

 

Samathorn Teankingkaeo, Chief Technical Officer of mu Space, said: “This RFP and the resulting contracts demonstrate mu Space’s capability to proceed with our plan of launching a satellite.”

 

According to mu Space’s plan, the company will launch its own satellite in the early 2020s aboard New Glenn, a space vehicle of US-based aerospace manufacturer Blue Origin.

 

“We’re searching a technology partner who is flexible and adaptable with our design ideas and long term business goals. We’ll look at all sorts of proposals from bidders, and  we’ll consider everything to make sure we award this project to the right satellite manufacturer,” he added.
