Airbus Selected By Telesat To Further Develop LEO Satellite Constellation

Will Deliver 'End-To-End' Solution At The End Of The Nine-Month Project Term

Airbus Defense and Space has been selected by Telesat as a major industrial partner to support their System Design and Risk Management phase for Telesat’s LEO constellation now in development. Under the terms of the contract, Airbus will perform system optimization, requirements engineering, and initial design of key hardware and software components for space, ground and user terminal segments of the Telesat LEO system. Airbus has agreed to deliver to Telesat, at the end of the 9-month project term, an end-to-end solution that meets the performance, capacity and cost targets Telesat has established for its state-of-the-art LEO constellation.

Telesat’s LEO constellation is being designed to transform global communications by offering a combination of capacity, speed, security, resilience and low cost with latency comparable to, or better than, today’s terrestrial networks. The advanced capabilities of Telesat LEO can satisfy many of the world’s most challenging communications needs, such as accelerating 5G expansion, bridging the digital divide, and setting new levels of performance for commercial and government broadband on land, sea and in the air.

Airbus will bring its wide range of expertise covering the full end-to-end communication system with satellite constellation and ground segment architectures, design, manufacturing and operations based on its strong heritage in GEO and unrivalled experience in innovative technologies, design and automated production of LEO satellite constellations.

"With four telecommunications satellites built by Airbus in its GEO fleet, Telesat has again affirmed its confidence in Airbus by selecting our company for its LEO system design phase, which aims to maximise capacity, coverage and performance while minimising delivered cost per bit,” said Arnaud de Rosnay, Head of Telecom Satellites at Airbus. “We are extremely pleased to continue our successful partnership with Telesat and to have the opportunity to apply our leading expertise to Telesat LEO, providing Telesat with a technically solid and truly compelling LEO constellation design."
