Demand for advanced business and personal communication services such as the Internet is exploding to the point that satellite-based multimedia products designed to serve continental and/or global markets now represent the next major satellite communication development opportunity. The Satellite Communications Program ensures that our industry excels on the international stage and that Canadians benefit from these developments.
The program is implemented in cooperation with the Communications Research Centre of Industry Canada and consists of two sub-programs:
supports the development of new Canadian products and technologies, and enhances the capacity of Canadian industry to secure market niches in advanced satellite communications systems.
promotes global standardization and supports the development of Canadian products and technologies for the growing global market in mobile satellite communications.
