OneWeb Announces Arrival Of 36 Satellites To India For Future Launch

MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik – twenty first September, 2022) The UK-based firm OneWeb introduced on Wednesday the supply of 36 low-Earth orbit communications satellites to the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India for the long run launch.

“OneWeb today announced the arrival of 36 satellites at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC- SHAR) in advance of a planned launch from Sriharikota, India. With this launch, OneWeb will have more than 70% of its planned Gen 1 low Earth orbit (LEO) constellation in orbit as it progresses to deliver high-speed, low-latency connectivity services around the world,” the corporate stated in an announcement.

According to the corporate, the satellites can be orbited by the Indian Space Research Organization’s heaviest rocket, the GSLV-MkIII, with one launch scheduled for this 12 months and three extra for early 2023.

“With a vision to deliver transformative connectivity around the world, the upcoming launch will be a pivotal moment for OneWeb, demonstrating tremendous momentum and progress towards delivering global coverage next year. OneWeb resumes its launch programme with leading partners in the Satcom industry and the company’s services are already available in Alaska, Canada, UK, and the Arctic region,” the corporate added.

In March, OneWeb suspended all future launches from the Russian-leased cosmodrome in Kazakhstan after Moscow demanded the corporate to offer ensures for non-military use of satellites and the UK authorities to promote its stake within the enterprise.

The OneWeb satellites are designed to construct a space-based communications system offering broadband web entry to any location throughout the globe.
