A sales and demonstration centre has opened at Westcott Venture Park for OneWeb, offering potential customers a glimpse into the future of connectivity.

OneWeb, a satellite communications network, has opened the new base at the new Satellite Applications Catapult which will manage the Buckinghamshire LEP-funded operation.

The Service Demo will showcase high-speed connectivity and promote potential partnerships and collaborations by organisations which can take advantage of high-speed data transfer.

Michele Franci, chief of delivery at OneWeb, said: “The launch of the Service Demo at the Westcott Innovation Centre is a significant moment for OneWeb as we expand our UK presence and lead the way as a global gateway for space innovation.

“The opening of this facility brings OneWeb closer to delivering on its mission to provide connectivity for people, businesses and governments, while potentially unlocking new research, development and manufacturing opportunities in the UK.”

Stuart Martin, chief executive for the Satellite Applications Catapult said: “This collaboration has the potential to create future business growth in a diverse array of sectors and represents an important milestone for the UK Space industry.

“By working with OneWeb, the Satellite Applications Catapult also continues to fulfil and maintain its own mandate to drive economic growth through the commercialisation of space technology.

“We are extremely excited by this development and look forward to some great outcomes for UK business in general, which will also lead to the development of other technology skills in the years to come.”
