Jabiru satellite program to deliver more powerful satellite internet services

NewSat’s Jabiru Satellite Program is set to deliver more powerful satellite broadband solutions not only for rural clients, but also to enterprise customers and government projects like nationwide broadband networks. The fleet of Ka band satellites are a new generation of birds that can deliver high-throughput capacity, and more efficient support for bandwidth intensive applications. NewSat Ltd has already schedule the first satellite of the fleet, the Jabiru 1, for a 2014 launch. Once in orbit, it will become Australia’s first fully owned commercial satellite, delivering new capacity across the Middle East, Australia, Asia, and Africa. Enterprise customers will benefit from this project, and could take advantage of the Ka band satellites for various applications like satellite internet, Voice over Internet Protocol, and even video and voice conferencing.

Government and military sector turning to Ka band

Ka band satellites are the next logical step for the satellite communications market. Providing greater capacity to support a range of communications solutions, the Ka band technology can deliver high-throughput capacity to military personnel requiring reliable and secure networks especially in volatile regions.

Unlike terrestrial networks which are prone to damages in conflicts, satellite communications solutions can be delivered anywhere, providing remote connectivity that works now only for military operations, but also business-related endeavors by industries with remote sites like mining.

NewSat Ltd is banking on its Jabiru Satellite Program to help meet the growing demand for satellite capacity. Its next generation ka band satellites will become Australia’s first independently owned commercial satellites covering the Middle East, parts of Asia, and Africa where demand for the technology has been growing over recent years.

NewSat @ AITEC  Last month, NewSat’s Regional Head for Africa, Steve Rich, attended the AITEC East Africa ICT Summit 2012. The event, which was held at the Oshwal Centre, Westlands Nairobi looked into the emerging IT-based economies of Africa and the four focus areas of ICT-empowered services, cloud computing, data security, and mobile applications.  Over the years, the rise of intelligent infrastructure in the region have also contributed to an increased demand for satellite capacity. NewSat’s Jabiru Satellite Program, which aims to launch Australia’s first independently-owned commercial satellite, is expected to deliver high-power Ka band capacity across Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Backhaul applications and other communications services will soon rely on the Ka band technology because it offers satellite capacity at an attractive, cost-effective level. VSAT systems in particular will enjoy increased mobility through the new spectrum.  Above are photos from the event. You can read more about NewSat’s participation, here.
