Abu Dhabi, UAE, 09 June 2021:  Al Yah Satellite Communications Company (Yahsat), the leading global satellite operator wholly-owned by Mubadala, and Airbus today announced the realisation of a key milestone in the construction of the Thuraya 4-NGS next generation mobile telecommunications system, the successful completion of its Preliminary Design Review (PDR). 

Thuraya 4-NGS is part of a transformational programme delivering a comprehensive, new L-band ecosystem with the upgrade of Thuraya's space and ground, and user (products and solutions) segments. Complemented by a 5G-ready core network, Yahsat's newest satellite system will ensure increased coverage and capacity, while delivering next generation mobility solutions for all customer segments, including defence, government, enterprise and consumers.
The PDR provided a comprehensive review, validating Airbus' design approach for both the physical and functional requirements of the satellite system. It also marked an important step towards the on-schedule completion of the Thuraya 4-NGS satellite and confirms its effectiveness for in-orbit operation.  In addition to the PDR being a major milestone in the programme's development, the achievement also demonstrates Yahsat's commitment towards transforming Thuraya and building its next-generation system.


François Gaullier, Head of Telecommunications Systems at Airbus said: “This important milestone confirms the soundness of the technical design and capabilities of the Thuraya 4-NGS satellite and the huge commitment and professionalism of the Yahsat and Airbus teams. It paves the way to achieve the next milestones of this innovative programme, which benefits from Airbus' extensive know how in mobile communications, as well as our latest digital processed payload technology giving increased flexibility and adaptability over the course of its life in orbit. Our long-term customer Yahsat can count on us, on the quality of our products and on our strong commitment to make Thuraya 4-NGS a big success.”
