This project provides for the development of a geostationary satellite for dual broad-band communications services dedicated to independent users and proprietors, for Italian and French military and government use. The use of "bands" oriented towards providing broad-band telecommunications services in the entire hemisphere of the geostationary orbit is also foreseen to support military actions and Italian institutional and humanitarian missions abroad.
Athena-Fidus will realize a telecommunications infrastructure that can substitute/integrate ground networks in case they are not available or if they are damaged.
The system will provide the following services:
EMERSAT Satellite solutions for applications and communications services
Technological Projects of Satellite Telecommunications Telecommunications at very high frequency bands
TELESAL Telemedicine applications
