Protecting Sovereignty with SSA

From the booming satellite launch market to higher frequency of human activities, the space domain has never been of more important to all space-faring nations. NSR forecasts over 24,000 satellites are expected to launch over the next decade, creating a never seen before problem for operators. This boost in activity has led to a new.

Are Terminals Included for MILSATCOM Systems?

Every year NSR writes about an ‘upcoming wave’ of sovereign SATCOM capabilities – WGS-11+, Skynet-6EC, etc. and today is no different. In the past few months, the UK announced $2B in ‘new funding for military space programs’, the European Commission announced “€6 billion program” with a component focused on secure connectivity, and Australia recently opened.

Opportunities and Challenges for Software-Defined Satellites

Flexibility is the greatest driver in the satellite industry. From manufacturing to launch, in-orbit to on-the-ground operation, flexible technologies, pricing, and solutions offer diversity and increase the playing field for competition. Yet, more does not always mean better, and the pace and necessity of flexibility can differ widely from market to market, customer to customer.

Advanced Television: Report: Space traffic data volumes to grow 14x

The Space Traffic Study from satellite and space sector research firm NSR finds that the amount of data to/from space will reach more than 500 exabytes of information from 2020 to 2030. Driven by the increasing needs for satellite-based connectivity and earth observation, data either generated in space or traveling through space will be roughly the equivalent.
