Telesat Canada jobs

Telesat is a Canadian telecommunications company that specializes in satellite communication services. It was founded in 1969 and is headquartered in Ottawa, Ontario. Telesat operates a fleet of satellites that provide a wide range of communication services, including television broadcasting, broadband internet access, and corporate network connectivity.

The company's satellite fleet covers the entire globe, allowing it to offer services in various regions, including North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. Telesat's satellites are positioned in geostationary orbit, which means they remain fixed relative to a point on the Earth's surface, providing continuous coverage to specific regions.

Telesat has played a significant role in advancing satellite communication technology. In addition to its geostationary satellites, the company is also working on developing a low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellation called Telesat Lightspeed. This ambitious project aims to provide global broadband connectivity with high-speed and low-latency internet services.

Telesat's Lightspeed constellation will consist of hundreds of satellites in LEO, which will work together to create a mesh network in space. This network will enable faster and more reliable internet connectivity, benefiting various sectors such as rural and remote areas, maritime and aviation industries, and government and enterprise customers.

The company's goal with Telesat Lightspeed is to bridge the digital divide and bring affordable and high-quality broadband services to underserved communities around the world. The project is currently in development, with plans for deployment and service availability in the coming years.
