OneWeb and Arianespace have signed a new agreement that follows the earlier suspension of the launches.
The terms of the settlement are confidential.
Arianespace’s launch campaign for OneWeb abruptly halted in March following sanctions on Russia’s Soyuz rocket, which the French company had used to deploy 428 of the operator’s planned 648 broadband satellites.
Arianespace is supporting OneWeb on its upcoming launches, including the performance of dispenser supply services for two launches to be performed by NewSpace India Limited, part of India’s national space agency, ISRO.
OneWeb and Arianespace are determined to examine future opportunities together, especially on the Ariane 6 launch vehicle for the second generation of the smallsat constellation.
