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.
U.S.-based Ramon.space today announced a new 8 terabyte (TB) modular storage solution, NuStream, that is protected by a virtual radiation shield and controlled by the company’s in-house designed RC64 processor. While the current space storage market is for Earth observation and satellite communications, Ramon.space CEO Avi Shabtai told Connectivity Business News that on-orbit storage will.

CACI is betting on it heavily. In December, the company completed its acquisition of SA Photonics, a company that Wood says was strongly positioned to address the mass market for optical communications that will be created by the LEO mega-constellations. And this isn’t the first investment that the $6 billion a year contracting giant has.
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.
Satellite big data services are undoubtedly a growing market. A digital transformation across customer verticals has translated into new business opportunities for satellite operators and service providers, driving adoption of cloud computing at different layers of the satellite big data supply chain. Additionally, a market for analytic solutions that simplifies raw geospatial data to consumable.
