MDA Corp. says commercial satcom bidding is at record-high level
by Peter B. de Selding — May 5, 2016
Multiple mythical beasts? MDA Corp. said its SSL satellite manufacturing division has received requests for information from seven customers interested in terabit-per-second satellites. SSL and Eutelsat recently disclosed that the just-launched Eutelsat 65 West A satellite over Latin America, pictured here, carried a secret passenger: An experimental Q/V band payload to test future terabit-throughput technologies.
