Turkey’s new satellite Türksat 5B was put into service with a ceremony by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan at the Gölbaşı campus of the Türksat General Directorate.

ANKARA (IGFA) – President and AK Party General Leader Recep Tayyip Erdoğan spoke at the Türksat 5B Satellite Commissioning Ceremony at the Gölbaşı campus of Türksat General Directorate.

President Erdoğan announced that they will launch İMECE, our domestic and national surveillance satellite developed by Turkish engineers, in January 2023 and TÜRKSAT 6A in mid-2023.

Erdoğan summarized the process of putting Türksat 5B into service today, where space travel began on December 19, 2021.

President Erdoğan, who shared about the process leading up to this satellite, which is a new stage in Turkey’s space adventure, said, “Actually, this satellite is the story of the obstacles in which the product and service policy is carried out in our country . If you remember, when we launched the Türksat 3A satellite into space in 2008, someone approached us with contempt. With their contemptuous attitude towards our project, they were actually displaying their own lack of vision and distrust of their own country. “In Turkey, Türksat 4B took its place in space in 2015. Now we are adding new ones to these satellites. Last year, we launched Türksat 5A and Türksat 5B, and we entered the middle of the rare countries that can send 2 satellites into space in one year.”

With Türksat 5B put into service, the data transmission capacity will increase 15 times, and the internet infrastructure will expand. It has announced that it will serve in a wide coverage area that includes the whole of the Middle East, the Persian Gulf, the Red Sea, the Mediterranean, North and East Africa, Nigeria, South Africa and close neighboring countries.

Later, President Erdoğan called the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Adil Karaismailoğlu to his side, pressing the 5D button, and activated the satellite after the first image arrived. The first relationship was made to the ship of Abdulhamid Han.
