Asiasat buys fully integrated satellite control system

MUMBAI: Satellite ground systems provider Integral Systems and Asiasat have signed a contract. As per this Integral will provide a single, consolidated primary satellite control system to Asiasat for its Asiasat 2, Asiasat 3S and Asiasat 4 satellites.

The AsiaSat 2 satellite is based on the Lockheed Martin Series 7000 platform, while the AsiaSat 3S and AsiaSat 4 satellites are based on the Boeing 601HP platform.

An official release informs that the system will be based upon Integral Systems' Epoch Integrated Product Suite (IPS) that has become the industry standard for consolidated operations of mixed fleets of satellites. This contract will deliver Asiasat an easy-to-use, fully integrated multi-satellite control center using a single platform that provides complete real-time command and control, orbital analysis and maneuver planning as well as offline trending/analysis functions for all the three above mentioned satellites. The new system will simplify AsiaSat's satellite operation, and in turn reduce operating cost states the release.
