Alphabus, the platform on which Alphasat is based, is Europe’s response to the worldwide market demand for larger telecommunication payloads aimed at direct-to-home TV broadcasting, digital audio broadcasting, broadband access and mobile services.
It was jointly developed by Thales Alenia Space and Astrium, and is available on the market to accommodate payloads with up to 22 kW of power and a mass of up to 2 tonnes. It has a typical payload capacity of 230 transponders, which is equivalent to more than 1000 television and 200 000 audio channels.
