TIBA-1 is a geostationary communications satellite for the Government of Egypt developed jointly by Thales Alenia Space (TAS) and Airbus. TAS, the leading partner, designed and built the communications payload, featuring a dual mission in Ka-band for secure and broadband communications. Airbus Defence and Space supplied the Eurostar E3000 platform and assembled and tested the spacecraft. Designed to remain in service in orbit for more than 15 years, TIBA-1 will have a launch mass of 5600 kg and an electric power capability of higher than 9 kW. Inmarsat-5 F5 (Global Xpress-5 or GX-5) is Inmarsat's very high throughput satellite (V-HTS), which will offer services covering the Middle East, Europe and the Indian sub-continent. The payload will be fully integrated into Inmarsatâ€™s current Global Express high-speed network. Inmarsat-5 F5 satellite is based on Thales Alenia Spaceâ€™s upgraded Spacebus 4000 B2 platform and will be fitted with 72 Ka-band beams. With a specified design life of 16 years, it will weigh 4007 kg at launch and will offer payload power of about 6.8 kW.
