ISRO’s yet another successful launch of LVM3 with OneWeb

On Sunday, the Indian Space Research Organisation’s LVM-3 launched its second commercial mission, putting 36 OneWeb satellites into orbit. This was also ISRO’s second launch for OneWeb, a UK-based company backed by the UK government and India’s Bharti Enterprises.

It was the sixth launch of India’s largest rocket, LVM-3, which also launched Chandrayaan-2 in 2019, and the second time it proved the capacity of sending several satellites into low-Earth orbit (LEO). The eighteenth launch of OneWeb satellites boosted the total number of satellites in the constellation to 618. With its first-generation constellation, the company intends to utilise 588 active satellites to enable global connectivity at high speed and low latency.

“OneWeb’s high-speed, low-latency solutions will assist in connecting communities, businesses, and governments worldwide, demonstrating the unparalleled potential of LEO (low earth orbit) connectivity,” the company said in a press release, adding that it would help India’s “towns, villages, municipalities, and schools, including the country’s hardest-to-reach areas.”
