Telkom Waits for Confirmation on Lost Satellite
TEMPO Interactive, Jakarta:PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk (Telkom) is still waiting to hear about the failure of the Telkom-3 satellite launch.
"We’re still coordinating with the Russians about the failure," said head of Telkom corporate communications and affairs Slamet Riyadi when contacted by Tempo.
Slamet was unable to provide a detailed explanation about the chronology of the loss. "We are awaiting official confirmation from the satellite manufacturer, the ISS Reshetnev Russia," said Slamet.
As reported earlier, the Proton-M rocket owned by the Russian government failed to reach orbit after an engine failure in the final booster and the company’s US$150-million satellite did not arrive at operational altitude.
Slamet explained that it was likely the launch failed because the rocket that was used did not work perfectly, so that the Telkom-3 satellite failed to orbit from the Baikonur Cosmodrome, Kazakhstan.
The Ministry of Communications and Information Technology said it has only received information about the possible loss of the satellite from the media.
"We have not received any official information," said ministry spokesperson Gatot S. Dewa Broto. MARIA YUNIAR
