The first Turkish miniature satellite to be launched into space after the Turkish satellite Turksat B5

The Turkish mini-satellite is named after the 263 miners who lost their lives as a result of the explosion of the "Gozlu" mine in Zonguldak province on March 3, 1992.

The Turkish mini-satellite is named after the 263 miners who lost their lives as a result of the explosion of the “Gozlu” mine in Zonguldak province on March 3, 1992.

The Turkish satellite team, Grizu-263A, is looking forward. Composed of a group of students from the Faculty of Engineering of Bulent Ecevit University in Zonguldak. To the January 13 date with great enthusiasm and anticipation. Where they will send the first Turkish miniature satellite from Earth into space.

On January 13, the Turkish miniature satellite will be launched into space via a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. American Aerospace Research Technologies, aerospace production, and space transportation, founded by Canadian-American businessman Elon Musk.

The cost of launching the Grizu-263A mini-satellite is 25 thousand euros, and its size is 5 x 5 x 5 centimeters. He is scheduled to work in the communications field for 4 years and 8 months in a low Earth orbit of about 525 kilometers.

The satellite that has been delivered to SpaceX is expected to take off. From the Cape Canaveral launch base in the United States on January 13 at 18:25 Istanbul time.

Bulent Akemichi, Grizu-263A space team advisor, said in a statement. Work on integrating the small satellite with the rocket has been successfully completed, and bringing the small satellite into orbit will be an important success. For Turkish space exploration activities.

He added, “This small satellite will perform important communications functions and provide high-quality, low-cost coverage. At a very low launch cost.”

Akmekji stated that they have set up a ground station above Zonguldak University Guesthouse to record the data that will be obtained. He pointed out that the success of the Grizu-263A team in catching the signal means that the team will be revived. And it can communicate with all scientific research stations around the world.

But for example, when we put 100 small satellites into different orbits, we will be able to make big gains ، Karim Oslo, a Grizu-263A crew member, said there are no obstacles preventing the small satellites from transmitting data from space.

However, it can perform important functions of communication by exchanging data and making it accessible to people elsewhere.

The cargo company of Turkish Airlines has transported a Ukrainian satellite “Sich-2-30”. assigned to Earth observation to Miami, USA, to be launched into space.

The media office of Turkish Airlines stated, in a statement issued today, Tuesday, that the satellite was divided into multiple parts. To facilitate loading and unloading operations, it is specially packaged to avoid damage ،The statement confirmed that the concerned teams completed the shipping process accurately and successfully.

He stressed that the company uses special equipment while shipping products of special importance and sensitivity, and the process takes place under the surveillance of cameras.

A Ukrainian satellite has been developed as part of Ukraine’s scientific and technical space programme. It will be launched from the launch pad at the Kennedy Space Center in the United States in January 2022.

After the moon is stabilized in orbit, it is expected that digital and infrared images of the Earth’s surface will be captured. Comprehensive data collection by examining the parameters of the Earth’s ionosphere.

On the other hand, the Turkish Minister of Transport and Infrastructure, Adel Kara Ismailoglu, announced earlier that the new Turkish communications satellite, Turksat B5, will be launched from Florida, in the United States of America, into orbit on December 19 with a SpaceX Falcon 9 missile.

The minister said at a press conference in the capital Ankara that a Turkish satellite produced by Airbus was transferred to the United States from France on November 29. He emphasized that it would be the most powerful satellite in the country.

Adel Kara Ismailoglu explained that the local industry in Turkey contributed to the production of the new satellite. He added that the work is expected to continue for another 35 years and is equipped with a new generation of electric propulsion system.

Turkey previously launched the TürkSat E5 satellite via a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket, and it is already in service, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has previously said that it will help secure TürkSat E5’s orbital rights in this regard. He said he would serve in Turkey for 35 years.

It is noteworthy that the Turkish TürkSat E5 satellite provides broadcasting services for a wide geographical area covering large areas of Europe, the Middle East and Africa, as well as the Mediterranean, Aegean and Black Seas. While the new satellite, Turksat B5, has a bandwidth capacity that exceeds all other satellites, it is estimated that the country’s communication capacity will increase by 15 times.
