Construct a satellite.
Contract Awarded for Construct a satellite on its Boeing 702 platform to serve mobile users in China, India and other Asian markets.
Contract Awarded Date : Oct 2015
Denver, Colo.-based NYBB, which owns 12 Ultra-High Frequency (UHF) channels in the U.S., is procuring the satellite and will lease capacity to CMMB Vision. Located in Hong Kong, CMMB Vision plans to use the satellite to provide a comprehensive suite of media and information services to Asian customers.
CMMB Vision is planning a new service in Asia based on Converged Mobile Media Broadcasting, the mobile handheld TV technology standard in China. Silkwave 1 will eventually take the 105 degrees east-orbital slot currently occupied by NYBB s AsiaStar spacecraft, along with its L-band spectrum rights. Silkwave 1 will offer 100 times greater transmission power than the spacecraft that it will replace. The new satellite will be based on a variant of the Boeing 702 platform with solar cells generating 14 Kw of power and carrying a 9-meter reflector. The launch is planned for 2018, and NYBB will decide on the provider.
