@Mr_Anderson007 seems like third party funded CAPEX. DG mentioned that in one of Maxar's conference calls though I think was related to government funded CAPEX for defense related space infrastructure development not C-band. IMO potential growth for 5G has enormous implications not only for economic growth but for national defense. Check out the two links below. DJ specifically mention ATAK in one of the conferences, near real time imagery required to optimize the system, that is where Legion becomes so important. 5G required to make it work in rural/remote areas/globally which is where Intelsat and Telesat profit. Maxar seems to have its hands in both cookie jars. Aftermath of 9-11 attacks were source of ignition for most of this. Plan is to get all of government (US MIL, Border Patrol, Law Enforcement, FEMA, Fire and Rescue, etc.) all on one system, you need 5G and near real time imagery to maximize system efficiency. youtube.com/watch?v=HdNy0YB... youtube.com/watch?v=IBE-DxQ...
