National System of Satellite Communication and Broadcast of the Republic of Belarus is based on its own communication satellite BELINTERSAT-1. It is meant to provide a wide range of telecommunication services (satellite TV and radio broadcasting, broadband internet access). The satellite carries transponders operating in C- and Ku-bands.

BELINTERSAT-1 is based on the DFH-4 bus (China) manufactured of 100% certified flight-quality components. It is the 9th satellite on this platform, launched into the geostationary orbit. «Thales Alenia Space» (France-Italy), a well-known world leader in the design and construction of the spacecraft, is a supplier of the BELINTERSAT-1 payload (transponders).
