OW-V OneWeb Constellation
O3b, owned by SES of Luxembourg, operates a fleet of 12 satellites in equatorial orbit at 8,200 kilometers. It is asking U.S. regulators to approve a major expansion of the constellation to add new broadcast frequencies and more satellites in both equatorial and highly inclined orbit. This is what the new constellation would look like. Credit: O3b.
