    Satellite Telecommunication missions and applications

    Satellites privileged position up in orbit means that they can deliver a whole host of applications, without borders and without blind spots.

    Satellites provide the connectivity we need, to keep us in touch, to keep us informed, to keep us entertained – and, in emergency situations, to keep us safe.

    Hosted Payloads: Capabilities and Opportunities

    Sharing access to space offers large cost reductions for both payload customer and hosting spacecraft operator.

    Airbus Defence and Space has considerable expertise in this field, having worked on more than 20 hosted payloads over the two last decades, for commercial and institutional users, civil and military missions. This encompasses a wide range of applications and service requirements for operation in LEO as well as in GEO.?

    How does a Telecommunications Satellite work?

    How do the signals travel? How are frequency bands chosen? What’s special about geostationary orbit?

    A communications satellite works like a relay station: signals transmitted by the ground stations are picked up by the satellite’s receiver antennas, the signals are filtered, their frequency changed and amplified, and then routed via the transmit antennas back down to Earth.
