SpaceX is on a collision course with the world's biggest telecom and satellite manufacturing companies, as it steps up development of its "Starlink" network of satellites.
If approved by the rest of the commission, SpaceX's satellites could provide internet to much of the USA and beyond, increasing connectivity. "Whereas SpaceX's technology would be a lot more satellites, smaller, and not in geostationary orbits".
SpaceX has separately filed for authority to operate in the V-Band, where we have proposed an additional constellation of 7,500 satellites even closer to Earth, our Very Low Earth Orbit (VLEO) system.
The investments have the potential to expand the number of internet users with access to their services. Engineers and technicians will prep TESS for launch inside the Payload Hazardous Servicing Facility at Kennedy, the same clean room used by NASA's Cassini, New Horizons, Mars rovers, OSIRIS-REx and numerous other missions before their launches. Since 2005 the company has "produced secure satellite communications services to government agencies in different countries" and worked toward "developing new constellations of Earth observation satellites and maritime satellite traffic information", according to the company. However, the satellites that will form the backbone off Starlink will orbit the earth at an altitude of around 1,200 kilometers.
The FCC granted the license, which highlights one significant component to the plan: The satellites will not be in a fixed position in orbit.
That program, known as "Starlink" in documents filed a year ago, aims to beam high-speed internet connectivity back down to Earth from two separate orbits, bypassing the need for complicated on-the-ground infrastructure.
A pair of SpaceX satellites launching under the guise of a "secondary payload" on a Falcon 9 rocket from California next week may hold the keys to the company's ambitious plans to enter the lucrative communications industry through an internet-beaming constellation.
The FCC gave testing approval past year to OneWeb, a SpaceX competitor run by a former Google engineer that's also planning its own constellation of broadband satellites. The launch had been rescheduled for Saturday morning, then pushed back to Sunday. For now though, their goal is providing internet for everyone here on Earth, including areas that have been plagued with a lack of connectivity, such as poverty-stricken areas/countries.
SpaceX expects the system, called Starlink, to be a big moneymaker. When and if the application will be approved is unclear, though Pai's support makes the approval much more likely. FCC chairman Ajit Pai has endorsed SpaceX's plan, but the full FCC has yet to vote on it. Europe comes second in the commercial space launch league with Russian Federation a close third with 162.
