NSR discussed whether the time for optical SATCOM is much closer than ever before realized. Commercially, today the market is in the process of customer trials, with equipment manufacturers dedicating intensive capital resources toward their production lines to meet the oncoming constellation and UAS demand. Within five years, a greater supply of space-verified and competitive.
NSR’s Emerging Space Investment Analysis, 3rd Edition report (ESIA3) released today, shows $7.7 billion in funding was raised in 2020 alone, bringing the total since 2000 to nearly $36 B. “2020 was definitely a record year for space investment, with M&As, exits, and new rounds closing as we witnessed more enthusiasm and optimism in the prospect for.
Commercially, today’s Optical Satcom market is in the process of customer trials with equipment manufacturers dedicating intensive capital resources towards their production lines to meet the oncoming constellation and UAS demand. Within five years, a greater supply of space-verified and competitive laser communication equipment (for all sizes) will enter the market, as seen from planned.
In late January ten Starlink satellites equipped with inter-satellite laser links (ISL) were launched, and the founder of SpaceX, Elon Musk tweeted that in addition to these satellites, all future Starlink satellites would also have ISLs. The launch represents a five-fold increase of total laser terminals launched into orbit to date. In many ways this.
Market Poised for Growth as Industry Leaders Utilize Optical Links for Constellation Deployment Cambridge, MA – NSR’s newly released Optical Satellite Communications, 3rd Edition (OSC3) report projects a $3 billion cumulative revenue opportunity through 2030 for laser communication terminals (LCTs) in both space and airborne markets. The Optical Satcom market is largely equipment-centric, with a.
