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The original article in Sat-ND, 24 January 2019, was partially based on outdated information.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.

Owing to a technical glitch, two articles in the 21 November issue were mangled into one. Correct versions were uploaded to the archive (Thales Alenia Space and ISS Reshetnev to set up joint venture / Northrop Grumman puts DWSS satellite in testbed). Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience.

The first European-made satellite to cover the U.S.

November 9th, 2011 by me

For the record (even though it doesn’t significantly change overall statistics): My recent statement that – apart from Americom – “all … other major U.S. satellite operators of the past and the present never ordered European-made satellites” is not entirely correct.

Eutelsat 3B, not W3B

July 29th, 2011 by

The new satellite Eutelsat ordered from Astrium was incorrectly referred to as W3B in the headline of an article yesterday. The name is actually Eutelsat 3B, as used throughout the article itself. The headline has been updated accordingly.
