Arab Satellite Communications Organisation (Arabsat), a Saudi based satellite operator, will focus on its recently launched satellite and its upcoming satellite launches at CABSAT 2017.

Arabsat will showcase the capabilities of its recently launched satellite, Badr-7, and the yet-to-be-launched 6th generation satellites. This consists of three satellites to be launched between 2017-18 and a fourth satellite, 6-D, which has been signed with Taqnia Space, a Saudi-based technology investment company.

Eng. Khalid bin Ahmed Balkheyour, president & CEO, Arabsat, said: “Arabsat will showcase its latest agreements to promote its exclusive orbital position 26⁰ East, such as our agreement with MBC Group, per which MBC has already begun to shift all its important channels to be broadcasted exclusively on Arabsat satellites, in addition to many other similar agreements.”

As an active member of the Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG), Arabsat will sponsor IRG workshop with the presence of many broadcasters in both public and the private sectors on March 20, at the Address Hotel.

Arabsat will participate in The Broadcast, Satellite and Digital Media Event, ‘Satellite MENA 2017’, on March 21-23, at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
