For Arianespace’s second launch of 2018, the company will use a Soyuz launch vehicle to orbit four additional O3b MEO (Medium Earth Orbit) satellites in the constellation operated by SES Networks.
This 18th Soyuz launch from the Guiana Space Center (CSG) in French Guiana is the fourth performed for the O3b MEO fleet, following the deployment in 2013 and 2014 of the constellation’s first 12 satellites.
With the launch of these four latest satellites, Arianespace is supporting SES Networks in the expansion and evolution of its constellation, which has been in commercial service since September 2014.
