Built by Airbus DS and RUAG the operational OneWeb satellites will be launched into a near polar orbit at an altitude of 500 kilometers before raising themselves on their onboard electric propulsion to their operational orbit of 1200 km. The satellite have a launch mass of 147.5kg each and a designed service life of more than 7 years.OneWeb (formerly known as WorldVu) is a planned satellite constellation to provide world wide internet access for individual consumers and airlines. The current design of the OneWeb satellite network consists of 648 MicroSats which are capable of delivering at least 8 gigabits per second of throughput to provide Internet access to homes and mobile platforms using its high throughput Ku-band payload. Eventually OneWeb may fly as many as 7088 satellites.
