Telset.id, Jakarta – The Federal Communications Commission of the United States (FCC) has approved SpaceKsa's request to launch 7,518 satellites in orbit with the goal of providing internet services. SpaceKs aims to carry out the mission in mid-2020.
In March 2018, the FCC also allowed SpaceKs to send 4,425 satellites into space. SapceKs was licensed to launch a satellite internet constellation called Starlink. TotalKs will send more than 12,000 satellites.
Starlink is an ambitious SpaceKs project that will globally provide orbital Internet services. Satellites in the constellation can make synchronized gestures, allowing all countries of the Earth to connect to one satellite simultaneously.
According to The Verge, as quoted Telset.id on Sunday (November 18, 2013), it is estimated that the project costs $ 10 billion or not less than $ 145 trillion. SpaceKs aims to run the constellation by mid-2020.
In addition to SpaceKs, the FCC gave similar permits and three other companies: Telesat, LeoSat and Kepler Communications. Based on the information, Telesat wants to send 117 satellites, LeoSat 78 satellites and Kepler Communications 140 satellites in orbit.
The Internet Satellite Constellation SpaceKs will be broadcast in low orbit, which should reduce the latency level. A total of 7.518 SpaceKs satellites that are just approved for launch will be 335 and 346 kilometers high.
Last week, SpaceKs requested permission to fly over 1,500 satellites at an altitude of 550 kilometers. However, the SpaceKs license has conditions. In order to use satellite constellations, SpaceKs must run half of the total within six years. [SN/HBS]
