TURKSAT 5A, is a Turkish communications satellite, operated by Türksat A.S. for commercial and military purposes. The satellite is placed in a geosynchronous orbit at 31° East to provide telecommunication and direct TV broadcasting services over a broad geographic region between west of China and east of England stretching over Turkey, as well as Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa. It has a launch mass of 3,500 kg (7,700 lb) carrying 42 Ku-band transponders. The expected on-orbit life time will be 15 years, but the more efficient electric thrusters will allow Turksat 5A to maintain its position in orbit for more than 30 years, double the life span of many large communications satellites, according to Airbus.
