The ARROW satellite bus is Airbus’ answer to an innovative, responsive, versatile and affordable platform for high-performance space applications. The ARROW satellite platform can serve many missions, including high data-rate low latency communications, collection and tracking of radio frequency sensing data, Earth observation with a high revisit, machine to machine communications, internet of things research, as well as in-orbit technology demonstration missions.
Arrow is a commoditized space vehicle, utilizing a design-for-manufacturing approach originated for the OneWeb commercial satellite constellation, and produced in an assembly line process to take advantage of economies of scale. Airbus’ approach is sought by both commercial and government customers, particularly for proliferated LEO constellations contemplated by the U.S. government.
