Airbus Defence and Space reports that it has successfully completed the Telesat LEO Constellation System Requirements Review and is now working on the detailed design of the system.
Airbus is one of two candidates bidding to build the Canadian satellite operator’s LEO satellite constellation that aims to transform global communications by offering an unsurpassed combination of capacity, speed, security, resilience, low cost and low latency, comparable to, or better than, today’s terrestrial networks.
The advanced capabilities of Telesat LEO will be designed to achieve new levels of performance for commercial and government broadband communications on land, sea and in the air.
In August 2018 Telesat announced agreements with Airbus Defence and Space and a consortium of Thales Alenia Space and Maxar Technologies (the owner of SSL) to further develop the Telesat LEO constellation.
