RVs Lead Connected Vehicle Market

For years the “connected car” has been the holy grail of broadband land mobile connectivity, with operators left and right trying to solve the market puzzle to get flat panel antennas (FPAs) on anything that moves. However, in 2023, this market has now finally become “real”, but not in line with the plethora of announcements of passenger cars over the past years, but rather, due to demand from recreational vehicles (RVs).

FPA’s Time to Cross the “Valley of Death”?

There is no secret that ‘times are hard’. Today is especially hard for early-stage pre-revenue technology ventures. The satellite communications sector has seen LEO constellations come into and out of viability as funding runs out. It should therefore be no surprise that one of their other ‘key enabling technologies’ Flat Panel Antenna (FPA) ventures are.

NSR’s Latest Report Projects $235.2 Billion Constellation Opportunity Across Expanding Satcom & EO Segments

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.

The “One-Terminal” FPA Solution

The satellite industry continues to show remarkable changes, with new evolutionary technologies being launched in the space and ground segment consistently. The demand for internet connectivity will continue to rise as the COVID-19 pandemic pushes digitalization and forces people to work from home. For the Flat Panel Antenna market, this means existing and new FPA.
