Aerkomm’s wholly owned subsidiary, Aircom Pacific has entered into a cooperation agreement with Telesat Leo to develop technical and commercial activities around Telesat’s Low-Earth-Orbit (LEO) Network.

The two parties’ technical collaboration includes testing network performance, leveraging Telesat’s Phase 1 LEO satellite which has been in polar orbit since 2018, ensuring compatibility with existing Aircom solutions and future user terminal solutions, and end-to-end implementation within regulatory guidelines. Commercial collaboration will include optimising business and operating models, joint presentations and information sessions with key customers and partners, and exploring a long-term joint development plan.

Louis Giordimaina, CEO of Aerkomm, commented, “Our research leads us to believe that a hybrid geostationary/low-earth-orbit solution will have the ability to provide such capacity, and Telesat’s LEO Network, a multi-terabit, high-throughput, low-latency open network infrastructure, is a fitting complement to our existing geostationary solution.”
