Airbus Defense And Space Will Operate German Military Satellite System

Agreement Spans The Next Seven Years

Airbus Defense and Space has been awarded a 145 M€  (approx $160 million) contract by the procurement agency of German Armed Forces (BAAINBw) for the long term operation of the SATCOMBw secure satellite communications system. Airbus Defense and Space has been operating the SATCOMBw system since 2006. This contract which has been renewed for the next seven-and-a-half years includes the in-orbit operation of the military COMSATBw1 and COMSATBw 2 satellites as well as the operation of their teleport and associated networks in Weilheim, Germany, until 2022.

The two military communication satellites COMSATBw-1 and COMSATBw-2 provide German armed forces (Bundeswehr) in operation with military UHF and X-band plus additional capacity in C and Ku-band over a coverage stretching from the Americas to Eastern Asia.

In addition to the two satellites, the SATCOMBw program provides a secure ground communications network and control system. Command centers, vehicles, aircraft and ships deployed around the world are linked directly into the base communications networks for voice, video, database access and IP (Internet Protocol) services.

“We are proud to support German armed forces for its worldwide missions and to keep managing the operation after our successful delivery of the SATCOMBw system”, said Stefan Gramolla, Head of SATCOMBW program at Airbus Defense and Space.

Airbus Defense and Space has been responsible for the overall SATCOMBw system design, integration and delivery of a fully operational capability. The company has also delivered more than 500 ground terminals with range of antenna diameters from 1.2 to 4.6 meters included maritime terminals.
