Small-COM: Optimized Communication Satellites for GEO

Small-COM is the telecommunication satellite platform, which is capable of accommodating a wide range of commercial payloads and missions; from TV broadcasting to multimedia applications, internet access and mobile or fixed services in a wide range of frequency bands. Small-COM's new, modular and flexible design, boosts global industry’s ability to play a significant role in commercial telecommunication satellites.

The satellite is a small sized platform which would potentially employ various frequency bands such as; Ka, Ku, X, C, S, L, UHF or any other telecommunication payloads according to the necessities with encrypted satellite access.

A finely optimized modular design approach was selected as a baseline in Small-COM Satellite solution to meet diversified customer requirements. The design of the satellite is based on previous experiences of TAI’s earth observation and telecommunication platforms.
