original 840-active-satellite Teledesic design later 288-active-satellite Teledesic Boeing redesign

Renderings of two Teledesic constellation designs. The original 1994 Calling design has 840 active satellites in 21 planes of 40. The Boeing redesign uses 288, in 12 planes of 24. Phasing between planes would not have been maintained as optimally as shown here.

Please contact me for permission if you wish to reuse these images or if you require print-quality constellation renderings suitable for publication.
Or you can just download SaVi and make your own...

Any use of renderings should credit SaVi. An interactive java animation of Teledesic is also available.
