Telesat wins contract with MDA

Telesat Canada is tasked to operate MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd.’s Radarsat-2 satellite, a commercial Telesat-1.jpgradar satellite which will be used to develop Canada’s earth observation business sector. Telesat will provide pre-operational services for the MDA orbiter, which will be the first non-communications satellite placed under Telesat’s control. “This contract aptly demonstrates the company's extensive expertise in space technologies,” says Dan Goldberg, Telesat CEO. “While Telesat is primarily associated with the provision of telecommunications and broadcasting services, the company is also a widely recognized authority in consulting services, research and development and satellite operations.”
