Arsat relaunches Arsat-3 satellite project

Thursday 6 February 2020 | 12:05 CET | News
Argentina's state-owned satellite operator Arsat has relaunched the project to develop a third geostationary satellite after it was suspended due to lack of funds and a failed attempt to secure private funding. In a statement, the operator said its new president Pablo Tognetti met with representatives of INVAP, a technology company owned by the Province of Rio Negro that built the previous two Arsat satellites, to resume the development of Arsat-3, which will be the first High Throughput Satellite (HTS) in the operator's fleet.
