Kuiper Systems LLC had recently made three sets of filings with the International Telecommunication Union, which is responsible for coordinating satellite orbits of all the nations. Amazon has also accepted that Kuiper Systems is among one of its projects.

Amazon is one of the latest series of companies which plans to construct a network of thousands of satellites to offer broadband around the world. Instead of traditional satellite internet, this new tech will be flying satellites in low Earth orbit, which means that it can be operated without splurging a lot of money and with relatively lower latencies. Other than Amazon even Elon Musk backed SpaceX plans to launch around 12,000 satellites as part of its Starlink constellation project. Even companies like OneWeb wants to launch around 650 satellites. Also, Facebook is developing an internet satellite of its own.
