“This new agreement confirms YahSecure’s position as the first commercial satellite communication service to provide foreign governments and military forces with military Ka-band capacity, the optimum satellite communications band for government and military missions,” YahSat said in a company statement.

Yahsat’s second satellite, Y1B, that is slated to be launched in April 2012, will offer services to military and commercial consumers via high-speed commercial Ka multi-spot beam technology in 25 countries in the Middle East, Africa and South West Asia. It will also deliver the YahClick broadband internet service when fully operational.
