We are pleased to confirm that we have entered into an agreement with @NewSpaceIndia, part of the Indian Space Research Organisation (@isro), that will help us to complete our satellite launch programme.

The first launch is anticipated later this year.

OneWeb contracts 2 launches w/ @isro commercial arm NSIL India, at least 1 w/ heavy-lift GSLV. First to occur this yr. OneWeb looking to replace 5-6 Arianespace Russian Soyuz launches now cancelled. Already booked 1 w/ SpaceX.

Can someone confirm it's 2 x GSLV Mk III launches?

TOI In a first, GSLV-Mk3 to be used for commercial launch, April 26
Also from the article: Roughly 30 satellites vs. 6-7 aboard PSLV (assuming that's PSLV-XL).



Will they use the GSLV originally assigned to Chandrayaan-3?

First time:
First launch of a GSLV variant not in the GTO direction, different launch azimuth.
First cluster launch, with a long mission duration for the upper stage.
One or two ignitions of the upper stage, is not known yet?

No information available yet. An older article suggests around 30 satellites per launch on GSLV Mk3: https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/home/science/in-a-first-gslv-mk3-will-be-used-for-commercial-mission-nsil-to-launch-oneweb-satellites/articleshow/91055331.cms

Quote
The source, while pointing out that a GSLV-Mk3 can put into orbit many more OneWeb-class of satellites (roughly around 30) in one launch compared to the PSLV (roughly around 6-7), said: “...But the exact number of OneWeb satellites the first Mk-3 mission will carry will be firmed up at a later stage.”

 Nice to see the GSLV being used to launch multiple satellites, I was wondering when that was going to take place :) Pardon the naivete, but these will all be launched in a geo-synchronous orbit, right? I think it will be a milestone of sorts, being a first.

One Web is a LEO communications/internet constellation, so, no GEO.

 Thanks, so the weight/mass of these 30 odd satellites will require a GSLV. And into a higher polar orbit than what the PSLV launches into.

What are the missions lined up in the coming months?

Our next mission will be a GSLV-MkIII flight. It will be a commercial mission. We are getting ready for the PSLV-C54 mission, which will launch the Oceansat. It is an earth observation satellite. We want to launch the next developmental flight of SSLV (SSLV-D2) in November. These are the immediate launches before November.

It's a bit puzzling that references to the upcoming  OneWeb satellites launch by ISRO, are almost all a few months old. You would think, by this time, there would be news items like " OneWeb satellites reach ISRO, being integrated on vehicle" or " ISRO to launch OneWeb in two weeks" . Nothing of the kind!

Come this October India will put one more of its rockets — the medium-lift Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mark III (GSLV MkIII) — into the commercial launch market.
      Sometime during the third week of October 2022, the ISRO rocket will fly with 36 satellites of OneWeb, an Indo-UK joint venture satellite communications company, said an space sector official.

This will be the first time any GSLV vehicle will be launching into LEO as well as being the heaviest payload to be launched by ISRO to date. Currently this record is held by Chandrayaan-2 at ~3850kg.

I've seen the highest launch azimuth for the PSLV is 140°. On polar launches, it flies a dogleg trajectory.
Is this also to be expected for the GSLV-III with OneWeb?

OneWeb satellites are at 86.4° inclination. The launch azimuth is 176.3°, so it looks like it will do a dog-log.

Exciting news from India as we confirm the encapsulation of our 36 satellites ahead of #OneWebLaunch14. The satellites have now travelled to be attached to the LVM3 rocket ahead of launch later this month.

Thanks again to our team, as well as @isro, @NSIL_India and @Arianespace!

Hello everyone! I have got 2 questions :

1) how much is the payload for next Sunday one web satellites launch ? Is it something like 2 or 3 tonnes ? Or is it more ?

2) I saw the picture of GSLV being moved to the launch pad. In the picture, I saw the second assembly vehicle building in the background (pink color type of building) is it now fully operational ?

Thanks,

Gunter's Space Page gives 147 kg per sat, which means 5,292 kg for sats themselves, excluding adaptator and other related items.

"Polar" just means a high inclination. The OneWeb orbits are polar. They are also relatively low altitude: that what "near earth orbit" means.

"Polar" just means a high inclination. The OneWeb orbits are polar. They are also relatively low altitude: that what "near earth orbit" means.

       I see, thanks.  I thought 'near earth' or low earth meant a geosynchronous orbit, with some degree of inclination with respect to the equator, and rotating with the equator. I was mistaken! 

 What is the height of the orbit of the OneWeb satellites?  Sorry, I missed it, if it was mentioned earlier.  Added: okay I found out it is 1200km.

The launch orbit is lower. About 450-475 km at the Soyuz launches. The satellites climb to 1200 km with their own engines.

Wonderful!   Very eagerly, but also somewhat apprehensively, awaiting this launch tomorrow!  Any reports at all of a brewing storm in the Bay of Bengal, possibly causing a delay. Perhaps the storm won't significantly affect the space port :-\

not clear how "velocity addition" is done after C25 shut off.
is the cryogenic stage re-start able?
or is it just the attitude control thrusters being used for delta v addition.

... each time a GSLV MK.III doesn't target geosynchronous orbit, since "GSLV" stands for "Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle".

We've also seen this renaming for Chandrayaan 2.

We’re now under six hours from lift-off, so there’s no better time to reflect on Launch #14’s mission patch.

This patch reflects Indian culture, its ethos, and its spirit of winning. We are proud to be building universal connections from Indian soil.

 The latest total mass of the 36 satellites is given as 5796kg, on the ISRO page. Whereas we've seen other figures like 5.3, 5.4 and even 6 tonnes.   Is this latest accurate?  I guess it will be revealed soon enough! :)

OneWeb / Launches / Press releases    23 Oct 2022
36 OneWeb satellites successfully launched by ISRO/ NSIL from Sriharikota

All 36 satellites are operational, bringing OneWeb’s total Gen 1 LEO constellation to 462 satellites. Launch 14 from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre SDSC-SHAR, Sriharikota, India marks the first dedicated commercial launch for NewSpace India Limited (NSIL) using the LVM3 rocket. With this successful launch, the LVM3 has become a catalyst for the Indian Space Programme, opening new vistas for heavy payloads to the LEO.

Sriharikota, India, 23 October 2022 – OneWeb today confirmed the successful deployment of 36 satellites launched by NewSpace India Limited (NSIL), from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC- SHAR) in Sriharikota, India. This launch by ISRO and NSIL is one of the biggest commercial orders by India’s premier space organization, and the first using the LVM3 rocket.

The lift-off took place on Sunday, 23rd October 2022 at 00.07hrs local time. OneWeb’s satellites separated successfully from the rocket and were dispensed in nine phases over a period of 1 hour and 15 minutes, with signal acquisition on all 36 satellites confirmed.

This is OneWeb’s 14th launch, bringing the constellation to 462 satellites. This launch represents more than 70% of its planned 648 low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite fleet that will deliver high-speed, low-latency connectivity worldwide. With only four more launches to go, OneWeb remains on track to activate global coverage in 2023, while its connectivity solutions are already live in regions north of 50-degrees latitude.

This partnership with NSIL and ISRO demonstrates OneWeb’s commitment to provide connectivity across the length and breadth of India by 2023. From Ladakh to Kanyakumari and Gujarat to Arunachal Pradesh, OneWeb will bring secured solutions not only to enterprises but also to towns, villages, municipalities and schools, including the hardest-to-reach areas across the country. OneWeb’s commitment to enhance connectivity in India is backed by Bharti Global, its largest investor.

The LVM3 launch vehicle realised with complete indigenised technology had four consecutive successful missions, which includes the critical Chandrayaan-2 mission. The vehicle underwent several critical tests as a part of human rating for the Gaganyaan programme. The cryo stage was uniquely designed to orient and re-orient in orthogonal direction to meet the customer requirements of injecting satellites precisely and with a gap to avoid collision. The vehicle was realised in a short span of time on a demand-driven basis to meet the user’s timeline.

Shri. Somanath S, Secretary, Department of Space and Chairman, ISRO, said: “Today’s event is very historic to the country and the Indian Space Programme. This is the first ever commercial launch of LVM3 with a heaviest payload to LEO. The LVM3 was conceived primarily for launching geo-stationary satellites with a payload capacity of 4T, which can be used for launching 6T payloads for LEO.

“The mission is very critical to meet the customer’s expectations to launch 36 satellites in 9 phases with precision. The mission was designed in such a way, that C25 stage was to handle this operation using in-house built inertial navigation systems. The injection of the satellites was so precise to the expectation of the customer. NSIL, the commercial arm of ISRO, entered into this contract and executed the same in a record time.

“This will pave way for more launches in the future. The interaction with OneWeb was so seamless, right from the receipt of the satellites until injection. ISRO and OneWeb teams worked like a family. I compliment all the ISRO centres and Indian industries for the commendable job and congratulate NSIL and OneWeb for the successful launch of LVM3 M2 / OneWeb India-1 mission.”

Sunil Bharti Mittal, Executive Chairman of OneWeb, said: “Today’s launch is a significant milestone for OneWeb. This new phase of our launch programme from India brings us a step closer to not only enhancing our global coverage but also delivering connectivity in India and South Asia, particularly to the communities who need it most.

“I am proud to be here in Sriharikota, with our partners, ISRO and NSIL. Today my dream of having an Indian element in the OneWeb constellation has been realized. This launch with ISRO and NSIL opens up the space sector in India with the possibility of billions of dollars flowing into the country.

“I would like to laud our Hon’ble Prime Minister for his visionary leadership in opening up the space sector for private participation. I also extend my gratitude to ISRO, NSIL and the Indian authorities for matching the precise schedule for this launch, which has been done in a record time.”

Radhakrishnan D, Chairman-cum-Managing Director, NewSpace India Limited, added: “The successful launch of 36 OneWeb satellites via the GSLV-MkIII from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre is a historic moment for NSIL and ISRO. We worked closely with the OneWeb team to support this milestone launch, which has been accomplished in a record time of a few months, while also illustrating the opportunities for satellite connectivity in India. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with OneWeb and utilising the potential that LEO connectivity has to deliver broadband services across India.”

Neil Masterson, Chief Executive of OneWeb, commented: “I am delighted that we have been able to resume OneWeb’s launch programme. This launch was made possible thanks to the hard work by our team and our partners at ISRO and NSIL, as well as shareholder Bharti Global. The spirit of collaboration exemplified by this international effort is at the core of our strategy to scale up our global coverage network. At OneWeb, we remain laser-focused on removing barriers to connectivity, ensuring that we deliver for communities and customers globally.”

Over the coming months, OneWeb will continue its focus on the launch programme and will also work with key distribution partners and customers to roll out connectivity solutions where its services are live. OneWeb will advance innovative strategic partnerships with leading companies in the communications sector, and sign agreements in the coming months to support the rollout of its coverage solutions.

This must have been a mission of staggering complexity, starting with the manufacture of the GSLV Mk 3 itself( with all the million and one components) , then the integration of the satellites, followed by the launch and deployment of the 36 satellites.

It would be nice to see a detailed technical write up on the mission!  "Frontline magazine", a publication of "The Hindu" newspaper in India, usually has fairly good reports on these events, mostly written by the journalist T.S Subramanian. There must be others somewhere!

Only OneWeb 0513 has started increasing its orbit so far.
The other 35 satellites are waiting, should they drift to another orbit plane?
