The aerospace industry has had a successful history in advancing the realm of global communications. Still, it is losing ground to new initiatives aimed at expanding markets in terrestrial mobile communications, such as third-generation (3G) and high-speed downlink packet access (HSDPA) networks. Satellite communications for voice telephony and television transmission have been one of the most viable options for long-distance communication. With its state-of-the-art space system assembly, integration, and test (AIT) facilities—backed by significant capitalization from its owners—GSATCOM specializes in developing, building, and selling cutting-edge telecommunications satellites. GSATCOM Space Technologies, Inc. is a joint venture company of Turkish Aerospace Industries, Inc. and INVAP S.E.
The GSATCOM satellite family provides a plethora of telecommunication solutions to its clients based on a small, fully-electric geostationary platform. The firm brings together cutting-edge infrastructure and thorough knowledge in satellite communications to develop superior yet affordable products to satisfy global demands. The company’s primary solution is a geo satellite with a launch mass of up to 2000 kilograms that incorporates a communications payload, consuming up to seven kilowatts of power and an average throughput of 50 Gbps.The Small-size geo satellite is a communications satellite platform that may accommodate a wide range of commercial payloads and missions, ranging from television transmission to multimedia applications, internet access, and mobile and fixed services in a variety of frequency bands.
GSATCOM enables telecommunication satellite operators to respond to evolving market demands and new commercial possibilities in orbit by customizing on-board payload solutions. GSATCOM payload capabilities are based on modern digital control systems, enabling international clients with unrivalled flexibility. The Digital Payload Unit's bespoke design, transponder frequency re-configuration, adaptive coverage, and power allocation capabilities serve to fulfill most of the end users' developing demands. GSATCOM's on-board software-defined resource management technologies provide effective digital solutions for adaptive missions that demand highly optimized power and bandwidth efficiency.
The communication applications delivered by the firm provide clients with a diverse selection of content and specific deployment locations with complete availability. In comparison to traditional fixed/broadcast and mobile satellite services, HTS systems provide a unique approach to regular satellite communication systems by giving much greater throughput.

Using frequency re-use and spot beam technologies, GSATCOM HTS payload provides high-throughput channels in order to support broadband access for enterprise, backhauling, and mobility markets. The GSATCOM HTS design focuses on enhanced performance, optimal coverage footprint, and a dependable connection over the whole geographic region served while maintaining an open architecture that allows complete operator control. The GSATCOM telecommunications satellite systems use flight-proven hall-effect thrusters (HET) commanded by power processing units (PPU) to produce a high efficient propulsion system that conducts orbit raising, station acquisition, and station keeping movements.
The construction of the Türksat-6A communications satellite for satellite operator Türksat AS was awarded to GSATCOM in 2014. The spacecraft is going to be the country's first geostationary communications satellite. Türksat-6A will include 16 Ku-band and two X-band transponders for commercial and civic communications, as well as two X-band transponders for military communications. The satellite's development and construction began in early 2015. The satellite will be constructed in 2021, with a launch date set for 2022.
