Turksat has placed an order with Hughes’ Jupiter Ka-band for receiver units for its planned High Throughput Satellite (HTS) Ka-band broadband-by-satellite system.
Turksat’s 4B craft due for launch early next year, will have Ka-band HTS capacity on board and available across most of Europe and the Middle East.
Turksat says it is already talking to prospective clients for the bandwidth and this includes discussions with education authorities for installation into schools, as well as other government departments and consumers.
