Purpose:Satellite telecommunications companies are in need of fleets of very small satellites, commonly referred to as nanosatellites with high capacity communications equipment. To meet the growing demand, new processes and design considerations are needed. This project will create a new Canadian communications platform that can support the growing demand and performance requirements in telecommunications. This work will position Canada as a leader in the nanosatellite industry and provide new forms of export revenue, in addition to providing public access to new communication services that will serve the entire country.
