The market for optical satellite communications has shaped up in recent years, led by the rise in New Space satellite network operators requiring high bandwidth intersatellite links and remote sensing solutions that demand greater downlink capabilities. Still in its early stages, this market continues to be largely equipment-centric. However, multiple players have moved on from.
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.
