In a short time, 36 One Web satellites will be launched to complete a constellation of satellites. See live here


News! Another release this week. A tranche of 36 One Web satellites will be launched on a Russian Soyuz-2.1b rocket. The launch will take place at 8:10 am ET and you can watch it live above. Roscomos said the launch will take place on December 27, 2021, depending on weather conditions. So the launch could be affected if the weather conditions at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan are not good. And yes, the launch will take place at the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. 

December 3, 2021: The head of Roscosmos, Dmitri Rogozin, speaking at the EAEU Space Integration business forum: "The launch of a Soyuz-2.1b rocket with OneWeb satellites is planned for December 27." Arianespace will be the launch contractor, so the entire launch will be organized by Arianespace, but the only thing different is that this time it will be on a Russian rocket. On this flight, 36 satellites are programmed to move into space. This number was expected, as One Web usually launches around 34-36 satellites at a time. 

"The latency is less than 50 milliseconds, and the speeds are 100 Mbps or more. So it seems like a final solution to connect those people who have been left behind. So I'm really excited about this. I call it a space telecommunications network. " Sunil Bharti Mittal, founder and chairman of Bharti Enterprises and a major shareholder in One Web, commented on these satellites. But we also have very good news. One Web will launch a few more laps of such satellites, then move on to the next generation. 

"We have already begun to produce a design that will have thermal imaging, surveillance, special payloads of government needs. They will then provide you with (information about) forest fires, agriculture, problems with underground rainfall patterns. All this will come in the next generation, which is three or four years away. It's not decades away. " said Sunil Bharti Mittal. 

One Web is evolving day by day and all the satellites it launches are successful and bring many benefits. And as it continues to grow, One Web recently signed a GDC Advanced Technology development agreement. And this agreement is to create an in-flight communications terminal for aircraft mounting.

We wish One Web and Roscosmos every chance to make an extraordinary launch.
