London, UK (SPX) Jan 09, 2023


OneWeb, the low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite communications company, will launch 40 satellites with SpaceX no earlier than Sunday, 8 January 2023, from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. This launch will be OneWeb's sixteenth to date and its second with SpaceX following a successful launch in December, keeping the company on track to deliver global coverage in 2023.

This launch will add another 40 satellites to OneWeb's LEO satellite fleet, over 80% of its first-generation constellation that will deliver global wholesale connectivity for its partners. This milestone mission marks OneWeb's second time launching from Florida, where its satellites are also produced by OneWeb Satellites - a joint venture between OneWeb and Airbus.

The launch will enable the company to continue expanding services around the world as it grows its fleet and seeks to initiate services for more partners across the US, southern Europe, Australia and more. OneWeb's connectivity solutions are already active in Alaska, Canada, the UK, Greenland and wider Arctic area, providing internet connectivity to unserved and underserved rural and remote communities and businesses.

The launch is scheduled to take place no earlier than 8 January 2023 at 11:55 p.m. ET / 9 January 2023 at 4:55am UTC.

The vehicle will lift off from Space Launch Complex 40 at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.
