For its second mission of the year — and the initial flight in 2019 with the Soyuz medium launcher — Arianespace will perform the first launch for the OneWeb constellation and orbit six satellites.
By operating this maiden flight, out of 21 launches on behalf of the global satellite operator, Arianespace participates in the fulfilment of its customer’s ultimate ambition: providing Internet access for everyone, everywhere.
The 21st Soyuz launch from the Guiana Space Center (CSG) will place its satellite passengers into a low Earth orbit, at an altitude of 1,000 km.
The Soyuz ST-B launcher will be carrying a total payload of 1,945.2 kg.
The launch will be performed from the Soyuz Launch Complex (ELS) in Sinnamary, French Guiana.
