Telesat launches first LEO satellite

Friday 12 January 2018 | 15:18 CET | News
Telesat successfully launched Phase 1 LEO satellite, its first satellite from the LEO constellation which will deliver fibre-like broadband anywhere in the world for business, government and individual users. The satellite was launched aboard a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) operated by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) and built by Surrey Satellite Technology (SSTL) based in the UK. The initial LEO constellation will consist of approximately 120 satellites by 2021 and Telesat is evaluating options to expand its system beyond this initial configuration.
