Thaicom TBD (?)

Thaicom TBD (?) [Airbus DS]

This satellite (name not yet published) is a planned software-defined, high-throughput communications satellite owned by Thaicom.

Thaicom Public Company Limited, an Asian satellite operator and space technology firm, has chosen Airbus to build its next-generation software-defined high throughput satellite based on the fully reconfigurable OneSat. This Thaicom satellite will provide millions of users with extended Ku-band connectivity across the Asia-Pacific region.

This cutting-edge satellite, which will be positioned in orbit at 119.5 East, will allow Thaicom to propose to other partner operators a share of its satellite's payload capacity, lowering their costs while still ensuring they have separate control over their individual payload capacity and flexibility. Eutelsat will lease 50% of the capacity of this satellite.

Airbus will design and build the satellite, as well as supply ground control segment components. Airbus anticipates delivering the satellite in 2027.
