As satellite communication technology has caught up to the market through past decades, one of the key demand drivers has been that of ever-increasing capacity and data throughputs. High-throughput satellites have become more common, powered by high data rate inter-satellite links in the case of non-GEO constellations, and earth observation sensors have improved tremendously, necessitating.
The market for satellite-based free space optical communication continues to evolve, with an active ecosystem of laser communication terminal manufacturers at various stages of development. Over the past few years, this market has hinged on the promise of yet-to-arrive high volume demand from LEO-HTS constellations, specifically those with plans for inter-satellite optical links. As seen.
