MDA said the the contract will allow the company to start engineering work on the 36-satellite constellation for the unidentified customer, using a software-defined satellite design like that MDA is using for Telesat's Lightspeed constellation. That design is different from the one MDA and Rocket Lab are providing for Globalstar. MDA said the contract value could quadruple if the company is selected to proceed with full-scale production of the satellites.
