First Türksat contract for Airbus

First all-electric satellites for Türksat

Ankara / Toulouse, 09/11/2017 - A contract for two new generation communications satellites was signed today by Türksat with Airbus Defence and Space.

The satellites, Türksat 5A and Türksat 5B, are based on the latest Electric Orbit Raising (EOR) version of Airbus’ highly reliable Eurostar E3000 platform, which uses electric

propulsion for in-orbit raising and station-keeping. “We are very pleased to welcome Türksat as a new Eurostar customer for the most powerful satellites of their fleet. We were the first to demonstrate full electric propulsion technology for satellites of this size and capacity, and this will enable the Türksat spacecraft to be launched in the most cost-efficient manner,” said Nicolas Chamussy, Head of Space Systems at Airbus.
