Starlink 1
for Communications
A batch of 60 satellites for Starlink mega-constellation - SpaceX's project for space-based Internet communication system. Since the demo launch of Starlink satellites, SpaceX has increased spectrum capacity for the end-user through upgrades in design that maximize the use of both Ka and Ku bands. Additionally, components of each satellite are 100% destructible and will quickly burn up in Earth’s atmosphere at the end of their life cycle.
