The first national communication satellite will cost Turkey $170 million
Step design Turksat 6A satellite, which is to become the first Turkish national communication satellite, nearing completion.
questions, related to the implementation plan for the development and production of communications of the Turkish national satellite Turksat 6A, were discussed at a special meeting with the participation of the Turkish Minister of Transport, Navigation and Communication Minister Ahmet Arslan and science, Industry and Technology Farouk Ozlyu.
In addition Ozlyu and Arslan at a meeting attended by representatives of Turkey's Council of Scientific and Technological Research (TUBITAK), as well as company Turkish Aerospace Industries Inc. (Mascara / TAI), ASELSAN и CTECH.
Project, launched in operation at the end of 2014 , with the financial support of the Ministry of Transport, navigation and communication, and the company Turksat, with the support of companies TUSAS, ASELSAN, CTech, as well as a number of Turkish companies and research institutions, general contractor performs Research Institute of TUBITAK Space Technologies (TUBITAK SPACE), It is approaching the end of the development phase. It has already started the production of the models produced by the satellite to conduct qualification tests.
Qualification tests Turksat 6A satellite scheduled for early 2018 year, and its launch is expected in 2020 year. Production satellite Turksat 6A, which continues at the Center for integration and testing of satellite systems (unseen) factory TAI, held with the participation of Turkish Engineers, who studied in France and Japan. Distinctive features Turksat 6A satellite, which is to become the first national communication satellite, It is, that, Unlike previous Turkish satellites, this unit will be built entirely of locally produced components.
When the project for the creation of value of the national satellite in almost 600 million Turkish liras (about 170 millions of US dollars) Equipment will be used, software and a number of subsystems, which will be used to build ground stations, developed by national manufacturers.
The total mass of the satellite Turksat 6A (a mass of fuel into account) be approximately 4 300 kilograms. The device will be placed in orbital position 42 east. 6A Turksat satellite will serve customers in Turkey, as well as in Europe, North Africa, The Middle East and Asia. The device will be equipped with 23 transponders, of which 18 will be in active use, (a) 5 - in reserve.

Satellite Intelsat IS-33 suffers from the second-board problem, which threatens the life time.
Paris - The satellite Intelsat IS-33, launched in August 2016, which took more time, than expected in the service due to a malfunction of its primary thruster motor unit, It was applied a second and potentially more serious anomaly, Industry officials said.
Recent setbacks, who officials have not yet been fully diagnosed, It led to an unusually large amount of fuel, It used during routine operation of the satellite position.
Especially IS-33 is used up more fuel, than is necessary, when he undertakes the far North South maneuvers, that geostationary satellites to carry out throughout their lives to keep themselves fully visible to the fixed ground stations.
Industry officials said, that, although insurance underwriters have agreed to pay Intelsat requirement for release thruster, some of them hesitate to pay claims, this leads to the problem of the use of excess fuel.
Not all insurers take Intelsat claims yet
Intelsat filed a claim in the amount of 78 million dollars to cover both the problem and began to receive payment from insurers. But some insurers spend on payment until, until they get more information.
One industry official says, the problem is, that manufacturer Boeing Satellite Systems International has not made a final analysis of the failure of any problems despite the year.
Intelsat 33e in a thruster failure slowed satellite rise to a circular orbit after launch in August 2016. Instead of starting commercial service in the East 60 degrees, with a broad footprint across Europe, Near East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and in the Indian Ocean, Commercial service began in late January.
INTELSAT clerk zaâvil, that the refusal of a satellite thruster depleted onboard fuel store, but not by much and that any reduction in the scheduled 15-plus years of life service will be minimal.
These calculations have now been relegated to the last issue.
Boeing declined to discuss the issue of IS-33.
Diana J. VanBeber, Intelsat Vice President, Investor Relations and Communications, confirmed the problem and relationship management in a statement said Boeing had yet to determine the root cause of any problem.
«Intelsat insurance compensation for Intelsat 33e covers two performance elements.
