Proliferated LEO Constellations

Scalable innovation and proven reliability

More and more companies are looking to space to answer questions on Earth

As access to space becomes more affordable and mission requirements change, large geostationary satellites are not always required to fulfill the needs of today’s customers.  
 

Some missions require multiple, smaller spacecraft that can be produced more quickly. Maxar’s proliferated low-Earth orbit constellations include multiple satellites, launched and operated together, with spacecraft starting at 150 kg. 

Global coverage and low latency

Maxar-built low-Earth orbit constellations are a reliable and cost-effective solution for missions that require global coverage for Earth observation, communications and national security.
