Yahsat selects GMV to provide spacecraft control systems for Thuraya 4-NGS


(02 Sep 2021) Al Yah Satellite Communications Company PJSC has selected GMV to supply the Spacecraft Control & Flight Dynamics Systems for Thuraya 4-NGS, a next-generation L-band mobile communications satellite system scheduled to begin operations in 2024.

Through this new partnership, GMV's solutions will provide Yahsat's Thuraya 4-NGS with an advanced, multi-mission, multi-satellite Spacecraft Control System (Hifly) and Flight Dynamics System (FocusSuite) for greater functionality, reliability, flexibility and user-friendliness.

The Flight Dynamics System will help Yahsat to improve performance and ultimately maximise the lifetime of Thuraya 4-NGS, directly improving the longer-term capex efficiency for the company. GMV will also be responsible for the deployment and integration of the control centre, as well as system maintenance and operator training.

The agreement marks another milestone for Yahsat as it continues to roll out its L-band next-generation system.
