COTS Usage and Reusable Launch Vehicles Enable Solid Constellation Growth over the Next Decade Cambridge, MA– March 16, 2022- NSR’s newly released Constellations Market Assessment: SATCOM & EO, 4th Edition report finds Satellite Constellations positioned to generate $235.2 Billion in revenue across Satcom & EO segments. COTS usage (commercial-off-the-shelf) components and launch reusability are key.
2021 saw a continuation of industry-wide transition in the satellite communications market, with the COVID-19 pandemic accelerating or worsening key industry trends. Most of NSR’s guidance for the satcom market persisted through the year, and some are set to accelerate in 2022. These trends include uneven growth across various verticals, vertical integration and horizontal consolidation,.
Mega-constellations are taking center stage in a pivotal time for high-speed satcom, but business-case and architectural facets will drive the multi-orbit, multi-band satellite paradigm. It is thus worth diving into the facts using NSR’s Non-GEO Constellations Analysis Toolkit 2.0 (NCAT2) to infer how LEOs may best interplay with well-established GEOs. Today’s fast-paced environment brings unprecedented.
The space and satellite industry got back together in person at SATELLITE 2021 with a lot to discuss, as progress has not slowed down since March 2020. This year, topics like ground station standardization, vertical integration, and consolidation drove conversations. Here are NSR’s 10 takeaways from the show…..
Northern Sky Research (NSR) has released version 2.0 of its proprietary Non-GEO Constellations Analysis Toolkit (NCAT). The update adds to NSR’s comprehensive analytical tools for benchmarking low Earth orbit (LEO) and medium Earth orbit (MEO) satellite constellations. A multi-faceted toolkit, NCAT includes analytical models, input and output data tables, comparison charts, maps with satellites, orbital routes, footprints per.
