Space Japan Review 8 - 9
No.36 August / September 2004
Interview with CEO
The number of households receiving BS broadcasts, which includes BS analog and BS digital reception, was about 16.51 million at the end of March 2003. And the number of households receiving BS digital broadcasts was more than 6 million at the end of June 2004. The most important role for B-SAT as a BS broadcasting infrastructure enterprise is to control and manage the five broadcasting satellites and to uplink digital programs stably, so that a huge number of people can receive BS broadcasting programs without any interruptions. If any trouble should occur in the BS satellite system, we must quickly and accurately explain the problem and report our investigation results and measures to prevent reoccurrence to program-supplying broadcasters and related organizations. We cannot function without the trust of customers, both BS broadcasters and viewers. I always tell employees to keep this in mind and to cope with the stress.

Satellite Communications and I
"I received a lot of e-mail messages of congratulations and appreciations on the day after the success. I still keep the messages. They are the proofs that if I never give up, I will reach my goal. They will give me a push to meet another challenge, which I am going to face. We have reached a long-haul destination of "realization of intersatellite communications", but we still have a long way to go. I think that my involvement in satellite communications will not end yet. I am going to continue to be in the field of intersatellite communications for a time. I will go ahead and build up my experience, looking forward the day I step into another new world of satellite communications."
