OTTAWA, CANADA and SÃO PAULO, BRAZIL – December 6, 2022 –Telesat (NASDAQ and TSX: TSAT), one of the world’s largest and most innovative satellite operators, and Sencinet, a leading integrator of managed services and solutions, today announced Sencinet’s 5-year high-throughput satellite (HTS) capacity commitment to modernize and expand the Petrobras oil and gas connectivity network.
The innovative design of Telesat’s Telstar 19 VANTAGE satellite was a key differentiator in the managed solution that Sencinet designed to win the Petrobras connectivity network contract.
