Following a decade of analysis of the in-flight connectivity market, Northern Sky Research (NSR) will help attendees understand the key trends driving satellite to air-to-ground (ATG) solutions. On April 2, NSR will present an independent assessment, revealing what changes are required to achieve a more holistic approach to connectivity.
For years, the emerging nature of FPA technology has long maintained price and performance as the main market obstacles. Compared with parabolic systems, flat panel antennas were not seen as viable, except in environments requiring a low-profile solution.
Viasat collects some thoughts from a cross section of NSR in this article, including OneWeb Finally Launches, Satellite 5G Progress, C-Band Spectrum Decisions, Pricing Freefall, Financials in Focus, Smallsats Take Center Stage, Falcon Heavy Enters the Scene, and Still Waiting for Flat Panel Antennas.
NSR quoted in iDirect’s Satellite Connection article. Flat panel antenna technology has recently come to the forefront as the leading solution for the land mobility market due to its low-profile form factor, making it easier to install. In fact, recent statistics from Northern Sky Research’s (NSR) Flat Panel Satellite Antennas, 3rd Edition report, forecasts flat.
The steamroller of HTS capacity, combined with falling transponder prices, requires a thoughtful assessment of the critical technologies expected to play a key role in closing the business case for satellite operators. Today, the satellite industry seeks to further its growth by accessing markets such as M2M/IoT, consumer broadband and mobility, and the ground equipment via.
