Palapa Fleet >Palapa-C>Characteristics


PALAPA-D and PALAPA-C2 Satellites are powerful satellites carrying standard C-Band and Ku-Band transponders, suitable and cost effective for voice, data, as well as video transmission and distribution. This powerful resource and its on-station keeping measures enable the use of smaller size of ground station dishes / terminals ensuring more efficient solutions.

Controlled by highly skilled engineers at Earth Station located at Daan Mogot, West Jakarta; and Jatiluhur, West Java; working in 7 x 24 hours ensures the highest quality of services and customer support. The station is built to cunduct daily satellite operations, traffic ( RF and video ) monitoring and measurements, as well as controlling access of customer to the satellite and customer support center.
