Telesat launch agreements awarded to SpaceX | Spaceflight Now
The Canadian telecom satellite operator Telesat plans to launch two multipurpose communications spacecraft aboard SpaceX Falcon rockets in 2018, the company disclosed this week in a quarterly earnings announcement.
The Ottawa-based company did not say if the new satellites, named Telstar 18 Vantage and Telstar 19 Vantage, would fly aboard Falcon 9 rockets or the more powerful — but still untested — Falcon Heavy launcher.
Telstar 18V and 19V are both due for launch in early 2018.
