ThinKom Solutions and Telesat entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to jointly create a Ka-band enterprise user terminal for Telesat's planned low Earth orbit (Leo) constellation of satellites. As an initial step in the process, ThinKom's ThinAir Ka2517 phased array antenna system, which is currently in production for commercial and government in-flight connectivity (IFC), will be used for over-the-air testing on Telesat's Phase 1 Leo satellite over the next few months.
