OneWeb has inked an arrangement with the commercial arm of the ISRO, NewSpace India Limited (NSIL).
This will help the Bharti Group-backed firm launch its satellite from India next year.
The arrangement will let OneWeb use an Indian-built PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle).
It will also build the heavier GSLV-MkIII as potential platforms.
The satellites would beam high-speed broadband on earth.
The non-binding LoI was unveiled at the Indian Space Association’ launch.
OneWeb is a low Earth orbit satellite communications company.
It will work with stakeholders for the development of India’s space ecosystem.
The company is building its initial constellation of 648 LEO satellites.
It has already put 322 satellites into orbit.
On the anvil are plans to begin services in the Arctic region like Alaska, Canada, and the UK this year.
By late 2022, OneWeb will offer its high-speed, low latency connectivity services across the world.
OneWeb will undertake its 11th launch with an additional 36 satellites on board.
