In July this year, the firm bought itself at public sale to the authorities of the U.K and a renowned private telecommunication operator in India. In a statement, Airbus owns half of OneWeb Satellites, and Floridian-based plant will remain undisclosed for business. It is preparing to rump up the manufacture of eight satellites a week by the end of the year.  

Manager of Airbus U.S Space Systems, Debra Facktor, who is also among OneWeb Satellite Board of Directors, confirmed that the main list of the entity is to make satellites in Florida. She went on to say that the corporative business enterprise will manufacture satellites for OneWeb, and to other clients as well. Facktor stated that there is an increased demand for small and large numbers of manufactured spaceships, especially from U.S authority entities.
