Established by Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and INVAP SE (Argentina), GSATCOM Uzay Teknolojileri AŞ, in the second year of its establishment, sold the "High Output Power HTS Satellite" for ARSAT SA, the national telecommunication company of the Republic of Argentina. TUSAŞ General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said the international success made: "Turkey will achieve much greater success with the steps taken in the space field. We are proud that GSATCOM, which we established 2 years ago, will make its first export in this field in order to give our country an advantage in the space field. As our President said, we, as a country, demonstrate our determination by taking the right timing and correct steps in space studies. Good luck to our country. "
In 2019, TAI's subsidiary GSATCOM launched the new generation communication satellite development program that will provide significant advantages in the international market. The production of ARSAT-SG1 Satellite, which is planned to be designed in two years by TAI, GSATCOM and INVAP SE engineers, will be completed in 2024. ARSAT-SG1 Satellite, which will serve in Ground Synchronous Orbit, will have strategic advantages that incorporate many technological innovations.
The new generation ARSAT-SG1 Satellite, which will be used for civilian data transfer and has a fully electric propulsion system, is expected to be in an important technological position among its peers in the world with its output capacity exceeding 50 Gbps in Ka-band.
TA has announced that in the export of space technologies, in addition to the sale of ARSAT-SG1 Satellite, it continues to work on projects that are aimed to be completed in the short term.
