Press release: AsiaSat + Integral Systems Europe... Terminal Upgrades For Tai Po (SATCOM)

Integral Systems Europe Limited (ISE ltd) has been awarded a contract by Asia Satellite Telecommunications Co. Ltd. (AsiaSat) for upgrading a satellite terminal at Tai Po Earth Station (Hong Kong SAR).

Under the terms of the contract, ISE will upgrade one of Tai Po's C-band Radio Frequency (RF) uplink systems. Factory integration for the new system will begin shortly at ISE's ground systems integration facility near Newcastle upon Tyne, U.K.

When the installation at Tai Po is completed later this year, the new system will expand AsiaSat's transmission capacity and provide more flexible transponder access across its satellite fleet. The award continues the 20-year relationship between AsiaSat and Kratos ISE. The ISE team built the original Tai Po facility for AsiaSat about ten years ago to support a new generation of satellites. This contract now updates those operations with the most modern technologies.
