Start of OneWeb solar array serial production - First flight sets delivered
At “world record” development speed of 6 months from start to final product, SpaceTech was able to deliver the first solar arrays to Airbus OneWeb Satellites, meeting the scheduled delivery dates. These solar arrays are going to start their ultimate job in orbit with one of the next OneWeb satellite launches.
Together with the solar array deployment mechanism (SADM), this second serial production for Airbus OneWeb Satellites is another important milestone for SpaceTech.
We are very happy with the success of this great joint effort and cooperation with our customer and are proud of our team at STI.
Airbus OneWeb Satellites, we are looking forward to see you fly and spread OUR wings!
