Japanese communications satellite bus. Mitsubishi Electric developed the DS2000 standard satellite platform based on a design originally created for the DRTS and ETS-8 platforms for NASDA.

AKA: DRTS;Michibiki;MTSAT;QZS. Status: Operational 2002. First Launch: 2002-09-10. Last Launch: 2015-10-16. Number: 9 . Thrust: 500 N (110 lbf). Gross mass: 5,000 kg (11,000 lb). Height: 4.00 m (13.10 ft). Diameter: 4.00 m (13.10 ft). Span: 30.00 m (98.00 ft).

The DS2000 features a highly reliable design and production based upon experience derived from participation in more than 280 satellite projects. It was capable of providing an output of up to 15kW, satisfying the power requirements for powerful and multiple communications transponders. At the same time its flexible design matched a variety of applications including hybrid communications payloads.

Leading characteristics:

  • Satellite Power Up to 15kW
  • Launch Mass 5,000 kg
  • Transponders 72 (nominal)
  • Life 15yr
  • Launch Vehicle Compatibility: H-2A, Ariane V, Delta IV, Atlas 5, Sea Launch
  • Subsystems
    • Electrical Power System: 100V regulated dual bus with high-efficiency silicon, multijunction GaAs solar array and NiH2 or Li-Ion batteries
    • Onboard Control System: Attitude control, data handling and satellite management
    • Attitude Control: Controlled bias momentum or zero momentum with satellite controller (SC) and four skew reaction wheels
    • Telemetry Tracking & Command: 1553B interface with SC
    • Structure: Carbon-fiber reinforced plastic, central cylinder type
    • Thermal Control: Heat pipe embedded payload panel, OSR, blanket and heater
    • Propulsion: Integrated Bi-propellant system with apogee and attitude control thrusters. Ion engine available on request.
