Bukit Timah Satellite Earth Station
|This article does not cite any references or sources. (December 2009)|
The Bukit Timah Satellite Earth Station (Chinese: 武吉知马卫星地面站; Malay: Stesen Satelit Bumi Bukit Timah) is the second satellite earth station in Singapore after Sentosa Satellite Earth Station in Sentosa Island. The station is located in Bukit Timah near Chantek flyover between Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE). This station is managed and owned by SingTel with the building starting construction in 1983 and started operations in 1986. As it is located next to the BKE, motorists coming into Singapore via the causeway see this as their first landmark other than Woodlands.
There have been rumours that this station is not only for SingTel use but also part of a joint military use with the US military as this station is guarded by members of the Singapore military rather than normal security guards.
