Officials from Telkom Indonesia expected the Telkom 1 satellite, which launched in 1999, to remain operational until Merah Putih's launch. Built by Lockheed Martin, the satellite was 18 years old, operating three years past its design life. The satellite is owned by PT Telcom, the largest provider of telecommunications services in Indonesia.
Merah Putih's on-board propulsion system will be used to circularize the orbit at the intended 22,300-mile altitude and to maneuver it to its designated operational location at 108 degrees east longitude. The new satellite will service Indonesia and Southeast Asia. That flight is scheduled for launch next month from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.
