TESAT is the world’s only provider of in-orbit-verified Optical Communication Terminals.

About us

Over the course of six decades, TESAT has developed in-depth expertise in manufacturing of payload equipment for communication satellites and has established itself as a clear market leader. On its 60,000m² premises in Backnang, Germany, about 1,100 employees develop, assemble, integrate, and test systems and equipment for telecommunication via satellite.

Our product offerings encompass highly reliable equipment as for example the travelling wave tube amplifiers, multiplexers, waveguide switches, and modulators, which along with complete systems are delivered globally to all leading satellite manufacturers. We are convinced that in future global communication will only be viable with the incorporation of space.

Therefore, as the first organization in the world, we are developing and delivering equipment for optical broadband communication in space.

Using laser, these terminals can transmit data and images between satellites and from satellites to earth. Advantages of laser communication are, for example, the high transfer rate and its stability.
