Update: TAS, Maxar to further develop designs for Telesat’s LEO constellation

January 27th, 2019 by

The original article in Sat-ND, 24 January 2019, was partially based on outdated information. It has been rewritten to reflect the fact that Thales Alenia Space/Maxar and Airbus Defence and Space were both selected to continue their work on Telesat’s LEO constellation after having completed their respective System Requirements Reviews. Hence, the article’s new title is “System Requirements Review completed for Telesat’s LEO constellation.” We apologize for any confusion.

Amazonas 4A launch mass

October 28th, 2013 by

The lift-off mass of Amazonas 4a is 3,000 kg, not 6,200 kg as erroneously reported. (The incorrect figure was actually contained in an Arianespace press release.) The article in the archive has been updated accordingly. Many thanks to everybody who reported this error.
