Telesat picks Airbus Defence and Space as second constellation design partner - SpaceNews.com aug 2018
"Telesat awarded a second constellation design contract Aug. 1, choosing Airbus Defence and Space to begin studies on the company’s proposed system of 117 low Earth orbit communications satellites.

The contract follows a similar deal awarded July 30 to a team of Maxar Technologies and Thales Alenia Space."

"Airbus is already under contract to build 900 small telecom satellites for OneWeb, producing the first 10 in France before shifting production to a new $85 million factory in Florida."

"It is not clear what role OneWeb Satellites could play in building satellites for Telesat. Erwin Hudson, vice president of Telesat LEO, told SpaceNews earlier this summer that the satellites Telesat envisions will be materially larger than the 145-kilogram satellites OneWeb plans."

“They are more substantial, larger, more complex satellites than some of the other LEO constellations because we’ve got phased array antennas and onboard processing in addition to the [inter-satellite link] terminals,” Hudson said of Telesat LEO.

Facebook ends ambitious Aquila program, will pursue partnerships instead | FierceWireless June 2018
"Facebook is getting out of the drone-building business, shuttering its facility in Bridgwater, U.K., and focusing on partnerships instead."

“Going forward, we'll continue to work with partners like Airbus on HAPS connectivity generally, and on the other technologies needed to make this system work, like flight control computers and high-density batteries,” said Yael Maguire, VP of connectivity at Facebook, in a blog post.

Airbus to establish Zephyr flight test centre in Western Australia | Jane's 360, June 2018
"Airbus has selected Wyndham Airport in Western Australia to be the primary flight test centre for its Zephyr ‘pseudo-satellite’ unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV)."

"The Zephyr is designed to operate for up to 45 days at a time at altitudes of up to 70,000 ft to remain clear of the weather and commercial air traffic. Potential payloads include an over-the-horizon communications relay for line-of-sight communications and/or a surveillance payload. The latest Zephyr-T (Twin-tail) being developed by Airbus DS increases the wingspan of the baseline aircraft from 25 m to 33 m, enabling it to carry as 20 kg payload."

SpaceDataHighway Achieves 10,000 Successful Laser Connections - Via Satellite - May 2018
"The SpaceDataHighway system, a public-private partnership between the European Space Agency (ESA) and Airbus, has achieved 10,000 successful laser connections. The reliability rate has reached 99.8 percent, and during the first one and a half years of routine operations, these successful connections have downloaded more than 500 terabytes of data."

"The system’s satellites are designed to lock on to low-orbiting satellites via laser and collect their data as they travel in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) scanning the Earth. From its position in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO), the SpaceDataHighway acts as a relay, transmitting the large quantities of data down to Earth in near-real time, at a speed of 1.8 Gbit per second."

"Each day, the SpaceDataHighway is able to relay up to 40 terabytes of data acquired by observation satellites, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), or aircraft to Earth."
