Starlink Block v2-Mini-D2D

Starlink Block v0.9 [SpaceX]
Starlink Block v1.5 similar

Starlink is SpaceX's 30.000-satellite low earth orbit constellation to provide global broadband Internet access.

The mass-produced spacecraft carry a communications payload using the Ku, Ka and E frequency bands. The satellites will employ optical inter-satellite links and phased array beam forming and digital processing technologies.

The D2D satellites are based on the Starlink v2-Mini satellites, which are using the bus twice the size of the Starlink Block v1.5 satellites. Jointly developed with T-Mobile, these satellites feature direct-to-cell capabilities, which will enable mobile network operators around the world to provide seamless global access to texting, calling and browsing on land, lakes or coastal waters.

The first launch contains 6 test satellites, licenced to operated for 180 days. If successful, the initial constellation will be extended to 840 satellites in 30 planes.

Note: The satellites are designated with individual non-consecutive numbers. Due to this and the large number of satellite, on this website the satellites will be designated by a prefix flight number and a number in catalog order to keep the lists manageable. Individual proper names are given in parentheses.
