OneWeb Satellites to open factory in Florida with eyes on business beyond OneWeb | SpaceNews.com

PARIS — Start-up Internet satellite constellation operator OneWeb LLC will build most of its 900-satellite constellation in a new factory in Exploration Park, Florida, following a co-funding agreement with the state of Florida, industry officials said.

The long-expected announcement was to be confirmed April 19 at a ceremony attended by OneWeb officials and Florida Gov. Rick Scott, officials said.

The creation of the Florida manufacturing plant adds another piece to the OneWeb puzzle, but at least two more-important decisions are expected from the company this year.
