Even as investment and excitement for Electronically-steered antennas (ESAs) continue to grow, it is vital to understand where & why MSAs will dominate.
When the term “flat panel antenna” (FPA) is mentioned, most envision a completely flat, non-moving piece of communications technology. These systems, specifically electronically-steered antennas (ESAs), capable of faster tracking and pointing than parabolic ones, are seen as an impending necessity for satcom, especially given the soon-to-be full skies of LEO constellations. Interest and development in.
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.
NSR’s Flat Panel Satellite Antennas, 4th Edition (FPA4) report, released today, forecasts cumulative FPA equipment sales to reach approximately $11 billion by 2028.
