    MISSION OVERVIEW
    • Type: Communications
    • Koreasat 5 is South Korea's first combined civil and military communications satellite. The military part of the satellite is known as ANASIS 1 (Army/Navy/Air Force Satellite Information System 1). Alcatel Space supplied both the multimission satellite and its ground control system, along with launch and early operations phase (LEOP) support. Based on the new-generation Spacebus-4000C1 platform from Alcatel Space, Koreasat 5 features a state-of-the-art broadband payload, including new technologies developed within the scope of the Syracuse III program.
