Athena Fidus Orbital Slot Assignment

Introduction

The first edition of this ground breaking reference work was the most comprehensive reference source available about the key aspects of the satellite applications field. This updated second edition covers the technology, the markets, applications and regulations related to satellite telecommunications, broadcasting and networking—including civilian and military systems; precise satellite navigation and timing networks (i.e. GPS and others); remote sensing and meteorological satellite systems. Created under the auspices of the International Space University based in France, this brand new edition is now expanded to cover new innovative small satellite constellations, new commercial launching systems, innovation in military application satellites and their acquisition, updated appendices, a useful glossary and more.

Keywords

European communications satellite bus.The Spacebus 4000 represented a new larger platform to meet customer demand.

AKA: Mugunghwa;Rascom;Spacebus. Status: Operational 2005. First Launch: 2005-02-03. Last Launch: 2015-08-20. Number: 29 . Gross mass: 6,000 kg (13,200 lb).

Spacebus 4000 could be configured to masses of up to six tones, delivering 16 kW of power with 120 onboard transponders.

At the same time, the satellite bus was more flexible satellites to fulfill a variety of missions. To guarantee compatibility with high-power performance, Alcatel Space developed the new generation Avionics 4000 based on a 100 Volt power bus. Flexible, modular and fully integrated with a central onboard computer, it was a world's first satellite to launch an AOCS (Attitude and Orbit Control System) with a built-in star tracker for use in Geostationary Earth Orbit. The Spacebus 4000 was designed to accommodate new communications services such as High Definition TV and broadband multimedia.

Electric System: 16.00 average kW.
