O3B FM14

NSSDCA/COSPAR ID: 2018-024C

Description

This is the fourth set of O3b broadband satellites launched, joining twelve constellation craft launched in recent years to connect those parts of the world where Internet access is not readily available through conventional means.

The O3b quadruplets will provide expansion services and extend the operation of the constellation into the mid-2020s when fleet operator SES plans to have the next evolutionary step of the system ready to deliver even greater capacity on a global scale.
