SKYNET 6A transitional satellite contract announcement

The Ministry of Defence has, for technical reasons, concluded that the SKYNET 6A transitional satellite (whose purpose is to extend the life of the current ageing SKYNET 5 constellation) will be acquired through single source award to Airbus Defence and Space Ltd. The MOD reasserts that the more substantial and less time-sensitive elements representing the new Service Delivery construct and Enduring Capability retain their default competitive position.
