Space News (Caleb Henry) reports that the China Great Wall Industries Corp has had another success with its strategy of offering turnkey construction and launch deals to commercial and national enterprises around the world. The deals were developed as a way of getting around US ITAR restrictions on US satellite technology being flown on Chinese launch vehicles. Specifically, it reports that Palapa Satelit Nusantara Sejahtera, a joint venture of Indosat Ooredoo and Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), has signed the contract for the construction of Palapa-N1, a high-throughput Ku-band satellite which will be launched on a Long March 3B (CZ-3B) launch vehicle. The deal also includes ground systems support, financing and insurance.

The satellite will use a version of the DFH-4 spacecraft.

The firm has also reportedly signed a non-binding MoU type contract for the construction of the communications satellite PSN-7 for Pasifik Satelit Nusantara (PSN), a Ka-band high throughput satellite offering 100Gbps to Indonesia and its surrounding region via 104 spot beams.
