Jarrod Lucas, a reporter on the “Kalgoorlie Miner” (known commonly as “The Miner”), a daily newspaper circulating in the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Goldfields-Esperance region, published a story about the Australian communications company NewSat, which is to date the continent’s largest provider of independent satellite communications/communications satellite (COMSAT), or the artificial satellite stationed in space for the purpose of telecommunications.NewSat-owned Jabiru is Australia’s first independently owned satellite operator to manage a fleet of commercial Ku band and Ka band satellites. In the article, Lucas discusses the company’s Jabiru-1 satellite, scheduled to take off in 2012, which is expected to boost NewSat’s presence in Southeast Asia, the Middle East and North Africa as its original plan to cater mobile communications carrier and private and public organizations on those places. Aside from that, they are launching Jabiru-2 which will deliver in enhanced coverage in Australia and neighboring states of Papua New Guinea and Timor Leste. Both of the satellites are stated before as NewSat’s plan to launch two satellites within the next two years. According to NewSat’s sales manager, Ashley Neale, satellite capacity is a “high-demand product and the demands is only going up.” With only the Jabiru-1 satellite, there is an expectation of surpassing the net profit and achieve revenues of $US 1 billion and $US 2 billion respectively throughout its 15-year life.
