AirBus Wins Contract to Build 900 Satellites for OneWeb

Airbus Defence and Space has been selected to supply OneWeb with 900 150-kilogram satellites, with the first deliveries in time for 2018 launch of the new fleet of satellites to support Internet access. .

The company said the first 10 satellites would be built at Airbus’s Toulouse, France, facility, with the rest of the constellation built at a factory in the United States.

Presumably, the 900 satellites represents a full orbiting constellation of 700 satellites in low earth orbit and 200 spares.
