Established in 2012 with a mission to connect everyone, everywhere, OneWeb's innovative satellite constellation will provide low latency, high-speed, fully-global coverage by the end of 2021. A non-geostationary (NGSO), low Earth orbiting (LEO) satellite constellation, OneWeb will be in a polar orbit at 1,200 kilometers above Earth, using both Ku and Ka bands, and will scale over time to meet growing demands.
OneWeb has partnered with Airbus to manufacture its satellites and with Arianespace to launch its satellites. The first six satellites were launched on 27 February 2019, and OneWeb is now scaling up to build 30 satellites a month in their new Florida facility, and then launch them every month.
OneWeb has secured more than $3.3 billion in funding from a range of world-class investors such as SoftBank, Qualcomm, Grupo Salinas, Virgin Galactic, Hughes Network Systems, Intelsat, Bharti, and Coca-Cola. Each will bring their added value for the manufacturing and commercial deployment of the OneWeb system.
