China Great Wall and Palapa Satelit Nusantara Sejahtera, an Indonesian joint venture, signed a contract May 17 in Jakarta for the Palapa-N1 spacecraft. Palapa-N1 will carry a Ku-band payload and replace Palapa-D, whose orbital lifetime was limited when the Long March rocket that launched it in 2009 underperformed. The companies also announced a non-binding agreement for a Ka-band satellite, PSN-7.
