According to NSR, a single Virgin Galactic suborbital space tourism flight, lasting about an hour and a half, can generate as much pollution as a 10-hour trans-Atlantic flight. Some scientists consider that disconcerting, in light of Virgin Galactic’s ambitions to fly paying tourists to the edge of space several times a day. “Even if the.
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.
NSR said this deal validates the ongoing relationship that Google has with SpaceX, as it has invested in the company in the past. Also, SpaceX’s partnerships with both Google Cloud and Microsoft demonstrate a hybrid, multi-cloud approach from the satellite operator, looking to make its Starlink system interoperable with different systems.
The NSR Global Space Economy (NGSE) report is the industry benchmark for evaluating trends and opportunities in the satellite and space markets. NSR’s Global Space Economy report establishes the key growth drivers in this evolving sector, with SATCOM alone representing a $500 billion cumulative opportunity through 2029. While mainly composed of infrastructure-centric revenues in 2019, the.
NSR discussed whether the time for optical SATCOM is much closer than ever before realized. Commercially, today the market is in the process of customer trials, with equipment manufacturers dedicating intensive capital resources toward their production lines to meet the oncoming constellation and UAS demand. Within five years, a greater supply of space-verified and competitive.
