The company received permission to launch almost 12 thousands of Internet satellites.
The document, which was issued by SpaceX, allows her to host a party satellites on orbit altitude of 340 kilometers, 68 kilometers below the orbit of the ISS. New devices will have to operate in V-band (40-75 GHz). This little used range. Satellites, the launch of which SpaceX received permission in March last year, it will be possible to broadcast in the Ku and Ka bands (12 to 18 GHz and from 26.5 to 40 GHz, respectively).
The system will consist of almost 12 thousand satellites weighing several hundred kilograms, divided into two groups. One of them will be located at a height of 1110 to 1325 kilometers, and the second much lower, at altitudes from 335 to 346 miles. The satellites will be able to exchange information with terminals at the Ground and together.
February 22, SpaceX launched the first two satellites of the system.
