Hundreds of millions of people on Earth lack reliable internet access. Project Kuiper will help close the digital divide by delivering fast, affordable broadband to a wide range of customers, including consumers, businesses, government agencies, and other organizations operating in places without reliable connectivity.
Launch & Deployment
Project Kuiper has secured 77 heavy-lift launches from Arianespace, Blue Origin, United Launch Alliance, and we have options for additional launches with Blue Origin, providing enough capacity to deploy the majority of our satellite constellation. The agreements comprise the largest commercial procurement of launch capacity in history, and will support thousands of suppliers and highly skilled jobs across the U.S. and Europe.
People & Technology
Project Kuiper combines a LEO satellite constellation with compact, affordable customer terminals, a global network of ground stations, and resilient communications infrastructure powered by Amazon Web Services (AWS). The system will provide high-speed, low latency broadband on a global scale.
Safety & Sustainability
Amazon is committed to operating safely and responsibly in space, and we’ve designed our entire constellation to minimize the risk of orbital debris. We’re also working with astronomers to explore ways to reduce the visibility of our satellites and avoid interference with scientific research.
