Turkey's first commercial satellite, Plan-S, was launched from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida with a Falcon-9 rocket as part of SpaceX's Transporter 5 mission.


In 2022, 2 more test satellites will be launched.

Speaking about his plans in 2021, Plan-S Senior Manager Tugay Güzel said, “Our satellites will be transported to space with the Falcon 9 rocket. We will build satellites in 9 months and launch 3 test satellites next year. There is no company that can send 3 satellites 1 year after its establishment. No one can even send a satellite, the fastest was able to send satellites in 2 years. When our contracts were heard, we attracted the attention of the world," he said.

In our constellation satellites, we will be able to communicate between two points with approximately 200 satellites. The team satellite concept will also be the first for Turkey. There are those who do this in the world, but this sector is a sector with a very high investment cost. We, on the other hand, do this much more cost-effectively with advanced electronic systems. We aim to be an IoT service provider, starting from Turkey and targeting primarily Central Asia, Africa and the Middle East. By producing our own satellites, we will be the solution partner of the countries as a service provider."

TÜBİTAK SAGE Energetic Systems Coord. Omer SUMER:

"Reusable-vertical landing rocket work continues successfully. The first successful ignition of a continuous detonation engine that can be used in space programs has been achieved."



Rotating Detonation Engines are pressure increase combustion engines working with the principle of burning in flow at supersonic speed.

Pressure increase combustion engines operate with a more efficient thermodynamic cycle, unlike conventional rocket and gas turbine engines.

Award-winning scientist Prof. Dr. Bilge Demirköz's interview with Tolga Özbek.

DEMİRKÖZ, who was part of the team that build and worked on the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer working on dark matter at MIT, is a world-renowned physicist for her studies at CERN, and is currently the head of the METU the Research and Application Center for Space and Accelerator Technologies.

METU the Research and Application Center for Space and Accelerator Technologies provides support to Turkish Aerospace projects and related institutions. There are many nice details in the interview, from the radiation measurement devices sent into space with Roketsan Probes, to the radiation counter that help to navigating drones.
