Milestones

Ciel

Ciel was founded in 2004 to develop Canadian spectrum opportunities and meet the demand for domestic competitive satellite services.

Within the first six months of operation, Ciel received authority from Industry Canada to operate a broadcast satellite at 129° West Longitude orbital location and began full-scale satellite operations at that location in August 2005.

In 2006, Ciel engaged Thales Alenia Space to manufacture the Ciel-2 satellite, which was launched on an ILS Proton Breeze M vehicle from the Baikonur Cosmodrome on December 10, 2008.

Industry Canada awarded Ciel six new satellite orbital locations, the largest award in history of satellite spectrum in a competitive process in Canada, in June 2007.

Ciel continues to grow rapidly, and plans are underway to bring spacecraft into service in the near future to meet demand throughout the Americas for high quality, low cost space segment.
