Manufacturing ViaSat-3 Satellite Payloads

In the early days of the company, Viasat grew its engagement with satellite development and production when it built satellite modems and gateway station termination systems for WildBlue.

As Viasat readied to implement its ViaSat-3 satellite constellation, it built the first of three satellite payloads and integrated it with its Boeing-made module. The second of three satellite payloads has also been built and partially integrated with its Boeing module. When launched, all three ViaSat-3 communications satellites will form a constellation in geostationary orbit.

The ViaSat-3 satellite payload was assembled at the Arizona manufacturing facility. The Arizona location is dedicated to designing and manufacturing systems, cybersecurity, and communication and radar equipment. Viasat also has facilities in Georgia, India, California, Texas, and other locations.
