China Great Wall Industry Corp. has signed a preliminary agreement to build and launch a telecom satellite for Bolivia. The spacecraft, Tupac Katari, is to be launched in three years. Tupac Katari will be based on China’s new DFH-4 telecom bus, which also served as a basis for Venesat-1, which China Great Wall built for Venezuela. The $300-million project will include two ground stations.
