Omnispace Spark-1TM Now On Orbit as Part of Omnispace’s Initiative to Deliver Global Hybrid NTN Connectivity. Omnispace and Thales Alenia Space, a joint venture between Thales (67%) and Leonardo (33%), are proud to announce that Omnispace Spark-1TM was successfully delivered into orbit aboard the SpaceX Transporter-4. The Omnispace SparkTM program represents phase one in the development and delivery of the world’s first standards-based global hybrid network. Thales Alenia Space designed and built the satellite, part of the initial two satellite Omnispace Spark program. The new-generation NGSO satellite in low-earth orbit (LEO) will operate in the 2 GHz S-band. Omnispace Spark will support the mobile industry 3GPP standard in band n2561, making connectivity possible direct to compatible devices. This program will serve to advance the development and implementation of Omnispace’s global hybrid non-terrestrial (NTN) network.
