STI to deliver solar arrays for Airbus OneWeb Satellites
We are proud to announce that Airbus OneWeb Satellites has placed a multi-million € contract to deliver hundreds of solar arrays for the OneWeb satellite constellation with STI. This order significantly enlarges the scope of the already successful cooperation with Airbus OneWeb Satellites on the OneWeb constellation, for which STI is already responsible for the solar array deployment mechanisms.
We consider this contract - being the largest solar array contract for STI so far - as confirmation of the competitiveness of the automated series production and in-situ process control developed at STI over the last years.
