We are getting closer to the historic launch of our first satellite – Ovzon 3.
Ovzon 3 is the first privately funded and developed Swedish geostationary satellite ever to be launched. It’s also the most powerful GEO satellite ever to be put into orbit covering 1/3 of the earth via its steerable spot beams. The satellite carries Ovzon’s patented solution with high power steerable beams and unique software defined capabilities.
Launched via a Falcon 9 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida, Ovzon 3 will reach a geostationary transfer orbit. Once released from the rocket’s 3rd stage at an apogee of 36,000 km, Ovzon 3 will utilize its internal electric propulsion system. Over a span of 3-4 months, it will gradually transition from the transfer orbit to its designated geostationary orbit position, or ‘parking lot,’ at 59.7 degrees east.
The launch of Ovzon 3 will take place at SpaceX Air Force Station in Cape Canaveral, Florida, USA. The exact launch date has not been finalized yet, but the time window allocated to us is during December. We will provide a more specific date as we receive additional details from SpaceX within the upcoming weeks.
