Virgin Orbit’s 1st UK launch will loft a satellite to track illegal activity at sea

Ahead of its first UK launch this year, Virgin Orbit has announced its satellite will be tasked with tracking  a host of illegal activities at sea.  

The Amber-1 satellite is set to become the first-ever orbital launch from the United Kingdom expected in summer 2022. The satellite will be sent skywards from Spaceport Cornwall based at Newquay Airport in south-west England — the country’s first operational spaceport.
