Tiba 1

Tiba 1 [Airbus]

Tiba-1 is a geostationary communications satellite for the Government of Egypt developed jointly by Thales Alenia Space (TAS) and Airbus.

TAS, the leading partner, designed and built the communications payload, featuring a dual mission in Ka-band for secure and broadband communications. Airbus Defence and Space supplied the Eurostar E3000 platform and assembled and tested the spacecraft.

Tiba-1, designed to remain in service in orbit for more than 15 years, will have a launch mass of 5600 kg and an electric power capability of higher than 9 kW.

The satellite will be launched in late 2019 on an Ariane-5ECA rocket.
