Satellite communications company Intellian has signed a US$73m contract with low earth orbit (LEO) satellite network provider OneWeb to develop and supply affordable compact user terminals.

Intellian will develop a range of easily installed antennas using next-generation technology to provide high bandwidth, low latency connectivity to OneWeb’s global satellite service, which when launches are complete will comprise a constellation of 648 LEO satellites, intended to offer affordable, fast, high bandwidth and low latency Ku-band connectivity worldwide. The new terminals will be unveiled later in the year and are scheduled to become available in 2022.

CEO Intellian Technologies Eric Sung said: “We’re delighted to collaborate with our trusted partner OneWeb to design and produce this game-changing terminal, which is set to transform satellite communications by delivering cost-effective connectivity and enhanced user experience to multiple markets. This is another significant milestone for Intellian: we believe that innovation and ease of use are key to empowering connectivity, and the work jointly announced today by Intellian and OneWeb is fundamental to our goal to enable a globally connected world.”

Michele Franci, Chief of System Delivery at OneWeb, said: “We have a clear ambition to be a leader in the transformation of Space communications technology. We are delighted to continue our work with Intellian to develop a range of User Terminals that meet the needs of our customers in many different sectors including: small, medium and large enterprises; and major vertical sectors such as Enterprise, Maritime and Governments with mission critical applications.”
