The award is in addition to the existing contract announced in April 2014 for the provision of an X-band communication hosted payload solution. Aselsan is Turkey’s space and defence company, and prime contractor for the construction of the Ku-Band and X-Band payloads, which are scheduled to provide government and other communication services once it is launched in 2020.
