Optical Satcom: Into the Light

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.

SatNews: An NSR View: Optical SATCOM and the Digital Revolution

Demand is Developing explains NSR. NSR’s Optical Satcom Markets, 3rd Edition report, recently published, forecasts more than 10,000 optical laser terminals will be launched into orbit over the coming decade. Revenues in this market are driven primarily by the expected demand from various constellations, requiring a large number of laser terminals, with many operators citing at.

Optical Satcom and the Digital Revolution

As enterprise and government actors digitize their systems and processes, they continue to transition to cloud-based services to meet their needs for more storage and data transportation solutions. The characteristics of optical satellite communications include speed and data volume are well placed to meet the needs of those customers with an ever-growing appetite for highly.

Inter-Satellite Links: Is It Time for Lasers Yet?

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.
