The authorities of India have shown interest in the Ukrainian Lybid telecommunications satellite, the head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine, Yuriy Alekseyev, has said.
The Indian authorities contacted the Canadian company MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd (MDA), which is a contractor for construction of the facility, and said that they want to use the capacities of the Ukrainian satellite to provide communication for distant regions of the Himalayan mountains. Ukraine has supported this initiative.
The Lybid satellite will also be used for digital television in Ukraine and to provide communication for Ukrainian peacekeepers in different countries who are now paying for telecommunication services to foreign satellite operators, Alekseyev said.
