ESA dixit:
“SmallGEO is a multipurpose satellite platform capable of accommodating a wide range of commercial telecommunications payloads and missions, from TV broadcasting to multimedia applications, Internet access and mobile or fixed services in a wide range of frequency bands.
Its new, modular and flexible design boosts European industry’s ability to play a significant role in commercial satcoms by easing entry into the lower-mass telecom satellite market.
The platform was developed by OHB System (DE) under ESA’s Advanced Research in Telecommunication Systems (ARTES) programme. SmallGEO is the first ESA programme with OHB System AG as the industrial prime. Its first flight and in-orbit demonstration will be with the Hispasat 36W-1 telecom satellite.”
