The satellites will be launched on the company’s New Glenn rocketBlue Origin

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin announced Thursday, January 31 that it has signed an agreement to launch satellites for Canadian telecommunications company Telesat. Telesat is one of several companies racing to build satellite internet in low Earth orbit, a list that includes Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Richard Branson-backed OneWeb.

As per the agreement announced yesterday, January 31, Blue Origin will launch satellites for Telesat on its New Glenn rocket, which it is hoping to launch the first time in 2021, giving the company the ability to reach orbit. Currently, Blue Origin’s space tourism-focused New Shepard vehicle – which could start launching people this year – can only perform short hops to suborbit.

Telesat is Canada’s largest satellite operator, and it is in the process of developing a constellation of space internet satellites that will provide internet services around the world – including the estimated 4 billion people that lack internet access. A number of other companies including SpaceX and OneWeb, are also involved in this race to develop a functioning global space internet.

“Blue Origin is honored that Telesat has selected our powerful New Glenn rocket to launch Telesat’s innovative LEO satellite constellation into space,” Blue Origin CEO Bob Smith said in a statement.

“We are excited to be partnering with this industry leader on their disruptive satellite network architecture. New Glenn’s 7-meter fairing, with its huge mass and volume capabilities, is a perfect match for Telesat’s constellation plans while reducing launch costs per satellite.”

The agreement did not go into detail on how many satellites would be launched, or when. But we do know that Telesat hopes to eventually have nearly 300 satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO), enough to beam internet services around the world.

“Blue Origin’s powerful New Glenn rocket is a disruptive force in the launch services market which, in turn, will help Telesat disrupt the economics and performance of global broadband connectivity,” said Dan Goldberg, Telesat’s President and CEO, in a separate statement. “Telesat is working with a range of world-class companies to build, deploy and operate our advanced, global LEO network.”

Telesat also announced that it had signed an agreement with Loon, a project from Google’s parent company Alphabet that plans to provide internet services via a fleet of floating balloons in the stratosphere. This agreement will see Loon supply software to help Telesat’s fleet of satellites in orbit deliver internet to the ground.

As mentioned, Telesat is not the only company hoping to make waves in the space internet market, which has been valued at $127.7 billion. Elon Musk’s SpaceX has been working on its own service, called Starlink, with the goal of launching a rather astonishing 12,000 satellites in total.

Satellite broadband startup OneWeb meanwhile, which also plans to fly satellites on New Glenn, is aiming to launch about 600 satellites into orbit to compete with Telesat and SpaceX. The company has raised $1.7 billion to date, and had planned to launch its first 10 satellites in February 2019, although the launch has been delayed.

As for when we might see space internet become a reality, OneWeb is hoping to begin its service in 2019 or2020 Telesat already has satellites in orbit, and plans to start offering a first generation space internet service in the early 2020s. And SpaceX is aiming to launch its first batch of satellites this year, with its full constellation deployed by the mid-2020s.

The satellites will be released on the business’s New Glenn rocket Blue Origin

Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin revealed Thursday, January(************************************************** )that it has actually signed an arrangement to release satellites for Canadian telecoms business Telesat. Telesat is among a number of business racing to construct satellite web in low Earth orbit, a list that consists of Elon Musk’s SpaceX and Richard Branson-backed OneWeb.

According to the contract revealed the other day, January 31, Blue Origin will release satellites for Telesat on its New Glenn rocket, which it is wanting to release the very first time in 2021, offering the business the capability to reach orbit. Presently, Blue Origin’s area tourism-focused New Shepard car– which might begin introducing individuals this year — can just carry out brief hops to suborbit.

Telesat is Canada’s biggest satellite operator, and it remains in the procedure of establishing a constellation of area web satellites that will supply web services worldwide– consisting of the approximated 4 billion individuals that do not have web gain access to. A variety of other business consisting of SpaceX and OneWeb, are likewise associated with this race to establish an operating international area web.

” Blue Origin is honored that Telesat has actually picked our effective New Glenn rocket to release Telesat’s ingenious LEO satellite constellation into area,” Blue Origin CEO Bob Smith stated in a declaration

” We are thrilled to be partnering with this market leader on their disruptive satellite network architecture. New Glenn’s 7-meter fairing, with its big mass and volume abilities, is a best match for Telesat’s constellation strategies while decreasing launch expenses per satellite.”

Telesat likewise revealed that it had signed an arrangement with Crazy, a task from Google’s moms and dad business Alphabet that prepares to supply web services by means of a fleet of drifting balloons in the stratosphere. This contract will see Crazy supply software application to assist Telesat’s fleet of satellites in orbit provide web to the ground.

As discussed, Telesat is not the only business wanting to make waves in the area web market, which has actually been valued at $1277 billion Elon Musk’s SpaceX has actually been dealing with its own service, called Starlink, with the objective of introducing a rather amazing 12,000 satellites in overall.

Satellite broadband start-up OneWeb on the other hand, which likewise prepares to fly satellites on New Glenn, is intending to release about 600 satellites into orbit to take on Telesat and SpaceX. The business has actually raised $1.7 billion to date, and had actually prepared to release its very first 10 satellites in February 2019, although the launch has actually been postponed
