ViaSat-3 is satellite reimagined

Get to know the next generation of high-capacity satellites from Viasat 

A picture of a single ViaSat-3 satellite



The ViaSat-3 constellation is our next generation of ultra-high-capacity, ka波段卫星, expected to increase our global coverage and network capacity — bringing affordable, high-quality connectivity where, 当, 以及最需要它的地方. 完全运行时, the network is expected to enable billions — in homes and businesses, 在飞机上和海上, and in 社区 that were once off the grid — to connect with the people and information they need.


The first satellite of the global ViaSat-3 constellation was successfully launched from NASA's Kennedy 空间 Center in Florida in 2023. Launches for the subsequent ViasSat-3 satellites are pending.
