Boasting Very High Throughput Satellite (V/HTS), SATRIA-1 is expected to revolutionise internet services with an astonishing capacity of up to 150Gbps. The $550 million spacecraft is envisioned to boost connectivity inclusion within Indonesia, providing free internet connection to 150,000 public facilities including schools and health facilities.

The launch of SATRIA-1 is expected to boost the economic growth of Indonesia, improve the quality of public facility, and eventually improve the quality of life of the people. SATRIA-1 is regarded as the most powerful in South-East Asia region and number 5 globally.
