OneWeb Launch #11 (Flight ST36) is scheduled to depart 14 October at 6:40pm local time (5:40am ET / 9:40am UTC), with 36 satellites on board and marks one of the most exciting advances yet for OneWeb’s global communications network.
The launch will take place from the Vostochny Cosmodrome and will be conducted by Arianespace. You can view the Launch #11 event live on the website OneWeb.net, or @oneweb – Youtube.
Each of these satellites includes several EHP heat pipes, designed & manufactured within our premises in Nivelles, Belgium.
Our fully-passive heat pipes, equipped with a capillary structure and filled with high-purity ammonia, are a key part of the satellite thermal control.
The dual phase system enables the satellite & the payload to remain within a limited temperature range, despite the very harsh space environment.
