Description

This British Aerospace mission patch depicts EUROSTAR – a satellite bus designed in the 1980s by Airbus Defence and Space (formerly Astrium, and before 1994, formerly United Satellite, a consortium of British Aerospace, and Matra Marconi Space). A satellite bus is the infrastructure of a spacecraft, providing locations for the payload.

The EUROSTAR spacecraft series has been used for providing telecommunications services in geosynchronous orbit (GEO) for uses such as broadband and secured communications. Multiple generations of the satellite have become larger, more powerful and more economical, but the overall configuration of EUROSTAR has stayed largely the same.
