During the recent trip, I met up with our project team at SSL before the NAB show,the world’s largest electronic media show held in Las Vegas, US. This is my first face-to-face meeting with AsiaSat 9. AsiaSat 9 is physically larger and carries more capability/capacity than our prior satellites. You can see it from the majestic body dimension listed below.
8.065 m (Height)
3.056 m x 3.571 m (Stowed)
31.166 m x 9.040 m (Deployed)
AsiaSat 9 mainbody is taking shape, though still a lot of work to do before it is ready to leave the factory for launch. Teamwork with SSL is most important, Go AsiaSat 9 !
