Sky and Space Global Ltd Signs Binding Launch Services Agreement with Virgin Galactic

Sky and Space Global Ltd. has signed a binding launch services agreement with Virgin Galactic. This agreement secures four dedicated missions on Virgin Galactic's LauncherOne for the deployment of the initial Equatorial constellation from 2018. LauncherOne is Virgin Galactic's orbital launch vehicle, dedicated to the small satellite market. Sky and Space Global plans to predominately use Virgin's LauncherOne to launch its Equatorial constellation of nano-satellites. Under the terms of the binding launch services agreement signed with Virgin Galactic, the company has purchased four dedicated missions on the LauncherOne system from 2018. Each of the four launches purchased will carry multiple nano-satellites, which will allow the company to rapidly establish its full constellation of up 200 nano-satellites and provide equatorial band communications infrastructure. Sky and Space Global's flights are the first LauncherOne missions to be announced that are planned to fly from low latitudes. This allows the Company to maximise the amount of payload delivered to a low inclination orbit. The company's full constellation of nano-satellites, has enormous value creation potential for investors and will be able to provide communications infrastructure to billions of people globally who are currently without access to adequate communications services.
