November 29, 2021

Azercosmos has mutually agreed with the Malaysian operator “MEASAT SATELLITE SYSTEMS SDN. BHD” (MEASAT),  for Azercosmos to be the sole operator of  the  satellite  at  46° East orbital slot, Azerspace 1. Both parties decided to conclude the partnership to align with their new strategic direction in the space market.

Under the newly signed agreement with MEASAT, Azercosmos will utilize all of the C-Band capacity of Azerspace-1/AFRICASAT-1a,  to provide satellite services  throughout the African region.

The C-band capacity of Azerspace-1 ensures that in the African region,  Azercosmos  will enhance and protect the interests of hundreds of established services and millions of African end-users.

Azercosmos will ensure the continued seamless distribution of broadcasting, data, video, and audio services to more than 100 million African households, and the reliable provision of data connectivity in rural areas and emergency situations.

"Azercosmos is proud to continue its delivery of highly reliable satellites services that enable customers to expand their opportunities in Africa," said Mark Guthrie, Chief Commercial Officer of Azercosmos.
