Hughes Managed Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellite Service
Reliable, low-latency broadband with enterprise-grade managed services delivery.
For latency sensitive applications and service in previously unconnected areas, LEO satellite service from Hughes delivers the ultimate connectivity solution. A OneWeb distributor and partner of choice, Hughes can deploy Low Earth Orbit capacity as a managed broadband service, a multi-orbit mobility or enterprise solution, part of a multi-transport Software-Defined Wide Area Network (SD-WAN) or within a highly specialized military network. LEO connectivity also presents an opportunity for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) to extend network reach into remote and rural communities where cable and fiber backhaul are unavailable, helping to bridge the digital divide.
Hughes is an investor in OneWeb and supplied the technology expertise behind their gateway electronics and core modules, giving us – and our customers – an advantage in engineering and integrating Low Earth Orbit solutions. Not only a technology partner to OneWeb, Hughes has decades of experience engineering ground systems for LEO constellations including Iridium and Globalstar.
In one of the first implementations of OneWeb service, Hughes is leading systems integration and ongoing management of LEO satellite communications (SATCOM) in the Arctic. The project for the U.S. Air Force Research Lab (AFRL) at Thule Air Base brings connectivity to the northernmost U.S. military site with secure, end-to-end service.

Fixed & Mobile Applications
Hughes Managed Low Earth Orbit satellite service comes complete with the Hughes LEO Terminal, the company’s proprietary, high-performing, electronically steerable antenna (ESA). The terminals support fixed, land mobile, maritime, as well as business and commercial aviation applications. Half and full-duplex configurations provide high performance for any application while supporting seamless handovers.
The Hughes Technology Advantage
Electronically Steerable Flat Panel Antenna
The flat panel antenna technology for OneWeb Low Earth Orbit (LEO) applications is the epitome of engineering feats achieved by the Hughes team. The sleek and innovative design of the phased array antenna is low profile and contains no moving parts, making it ideal for both fixed and mobile connectivity. This technology is a game-changer for LEO service implementations around the world. The electronically steerable antenna supports speeds of up to 195 Mbps down and 32 Mbps up with seamless handoffs from one satellite beam to the next and one satellite to the next to maintain uninterrupted connectivity.
Engineered specifically for OneWeb LEO service, the antenna is manufactured by Hughes in its factory in Maryland, USA.
