Small Satellite Manufacturing

In 2016, OneWeb and Airbus formed a Joint Venture, Airbus OneWeb Satellites (AOS), to manufacture small satellites in mass quantities for both OneWeb and multiple Airbus customers, leveraging Airbus’ long standing heritage in satellite manufacturing. The AOS Joint Venture facility, located in Merritt Island, Exploration Park in Florida, has the most advanced satellite mass production capabilities in the world. It is capable of manufacturing two satellites per day at an affordable rate. The cost of a traditional single satellite, which are most often produced in 4 to 5 years, cost tens of millions more than an AOS satellite. All 74 satellites manufactured and delivered to date for the OneWeb constellation are on-orbit and operational.

Pioneering Large Volume Spacecraft Production

The AOS Joint Venture is pioneering large volume spacecraft production and produces up to 15 satellites per week. Acquisition time for customers have been reduced to less than a year, making space technology far more accessible.  The payload interface is compatible with many different payloads. Previously unthinkable missions are now possible, as these high-performance communication satellites will enable high-speed internet access that can unlock healthcare, education, and economic advancements.
