  • Project Kuiper, Amazon veut lancer 3236 satellites pour le Net spatial

Le régulateur des télécoms aux États-Unis va statuer sur la demande d'Amazon visant à placer en orbite basse les satellites nécessaires à son futur service d'accès Internet "global".

Dans le cadre du projet Kuiper, Amazon a donc demandé à la FCC l'autorisation de lancer un total de 3 236 satellites dans l'espace. Sur ces derniers, 784 seront positionnés à 590 kilomètres de la Terre, 1 296 à 610 km et 1 156 à 630 km.

Comme SpaceX, ce premier lancement composera la première constellation d'appareils, là où d'autres suivront dans les mois et les années à venir.

En revanche, Amazon a d'ores et déjà averti le gouvernement américain: les satellites ne pourront pas couvrir l'ensemble du territoire, certaines régions comme l'Alaska ne seraient pas desservies. Avec l'engouement croissant des gouvernements et des grandes entreprises privées, pour la conquête spatiale, nous devons nous attendre à ce que ce problème devienne très préoccupant.
