As part of the SATCOMBw programme of the German armed forces, the two communications satellites COMSATBw-1 and COMSATBw-2 facilitate, for the first time, autonomous worldwide transmission of voice and data as well as video and multimedia applications. The German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) is responsible for operation and control of the satellites. The entire system is scheduled to commence full-scale operations by early 2011. Pictured: An artist's impression of the two COMSATBw satellites.
