Serving at the position of 42° East, TÜRKSAT-3A is fitted with 24 Ku-band transponders of 120 Watt and has a total usage capacity of 1296 MHz. It has a vast coverage area including Turkey as well as entire Europe, North Africa and all Turkish Republics, extending to the Chinese border. In this vast geography, our satellite provides both satellite communication services and high-quality direct TV broadcasting services through small diameter dish antennas.
Via VSAT terminals, TÜRKSAT-3A can also be used for the provision of internet, voice and image transmission services to areas lacking radio-link and cable transmission infrastructure due to geographical conditions. Our new satellite enables the provision of these services at much lower costs relative to the past. Following the issue of licenses for 3G communication services, TÜRKSAT-3A will be able to service in this area as well.
An expert team consisting of Turkish engineers and scientists has attended technology transfer and training activities on satellite design, parallel to the manufacturing process of TÜRKSAT-3A.
