OneWeb signed a “launch services agreement for multiple launches” with upcoming American launch provider Relativity Space on 30 June. According to the announcement, the agreement includes an undisclosed number of future missions utilizing its in-development, fully-reusable Terran R vehicle. The missions are planned to carry OneWeb’s planned Gen 2 satellites and are estimated to begin NET 2025.
In the announcement Relativity stated that this marks the fifth customer to contract for Terran R launches. However, it is the first to be made public. It states that it has secured “more than US$1.2 billion” in backlog for the Terran R. If this is the case some of its other customers may have also signed multilaunch contracts.
Relativity is working towards the maiden launch of its initial expendable Terran 1 rocket, expected this “summer”.
