MDA Partners with OneWeb on Massive LEO Satellite Constellation | SpaceRef Canada

MDA is the latest high profile company to partner with OneWeb in its effort to build a constellation of over 900 small satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) to provide affordable broadband services to areas of the Earth that are underserved.

MDA will provide OneWeb with antenna for the satellite constellation and payload design and engineering services. Terms of the deal were not announced. However, should OneWeb raise sufficient funds to build the complete constellation of over 900 satellites, the resulting contract would be significant to MDA.

MDA’s Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue office on the West Island of Montreal will perform the work.
