Thaicom Public Company Limited, an Asian satellite operator and space technology company, has selected Airbus for its new generation software-defined high throughput satellite.

This contract is the ninth order for Airbus’s OneSat product line, which is fully reconfigurable in orbit and provides unrivalled flexibility.

The satellite will be positioned in orbit at 119.5° East and will enable Thaicom to propose to other partner operators a share of its satellite’s payload capacity, lowering their costs and ensuring they have separate control of their individual payload capacity and flexibility.
