Bremen / Ottobrunn, 10. August 2018. OHB System AG, a subsidiary of the Bremen-based space and technology group OHB SE, is the principal contractor for the development and construction of the EDRS-C satellite for the European Data Relay System (EDRS). The European Data Relay System, which is also referred to as SpaceDataHighway, is a public-private partnership between ESA and Airbus. The telecommunications satellite arrived at the IABG space testing where it he has to undergo several months of testing before it is launched into space. The satellite has successfully passed the first test, the so-called space simulation test.

The EDRS-C satellite will remain at the testing center until around April 2019. Roughly five weeks before the scheduled launch date in the second quarter of 2019, it will be shipped to the launch pad in Kourou in French Guyana, where it will be transported into space on board an Ariane 5.



The EDRS-C telecommunications satellite is based on the SmallGEO platform developed by OHB System as part of ESA"s Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems (ARTES) program. After its launch next year, the satellite will join the first satellite EDRS-A at an altitude of 36,000 kilometers.



The dedicated EDRS-C satellite is fitted with a data relay payload with a laser communications terminal (LCT) for satellite-to-satellite links. Both have been supplied by Tesat-Spacecom. OHB System AG has developed and built the satellite in a contract for Airbus.
