Airbus: to build 2 satellites for the United Arab Emirates

( - Al Yah Satellite Communications Company PJSC (Yahsat), the satellite solutions provider of the United Arab Emirates, has announced that it has signed a contract with Airbus Defence and Space for its new geostationary communications satellites, Al Yah 4 (AY4) and Al Yah 5 (AY5).

Airbus will design and build the AY4 and AY5 satellites based on the Eurostar Neo platform, each with flexible payloads.

Flexible multi-band payloads can be fully reconfigured in orbit, capable of adjusting coverage area, capacity and frequency “on the fly” to meet evolving mission scenarios, the group said.

The AY4 and AY5 satellites will provide secure government communications over a wide geographical area across the Middle East, Africa, Europe and Asia.

Airbus adds that today marks a real milestone with Yahsat's selection of our pioneering, fully flexible satellite technology. Sixteen years ago, we signed our first contract with Yahsat, bringing the first sovereign telecommunications satellite to the United Arab Emirates. Today, our long-standing relationship moves up a gear with this contract for two Eurostar Neos, further strengthening Yahsat's in-orbit resources.
