[Via Satellite 09-10-2014] Surrey Satellite Technology Limited (SSTL) and Kypros Satellites (Kyprosat) have teamed up to provide a turnkey telecommunications SmallSat for Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO). Kyprosat is providing orbital slot assets and asset management services, while SSTL is providing its GMP-T satellite platform capable of delivering up to 5.5 KW of power. The GMP-T satellite platform can provide 8GHz of Ka-band or 1GHz of Ku-band, and can stack in pairs for reduced launch costs.
In addition to building and testing the satellite, SSTL and Kyprosat’s collaborative solution comprises launch, in-orbit and ground segment service management, licensing and regulatory management, financing, and insurance services. While the companies are pursuing traditional customers, the solution is inclined toward emerging players.
