Space exploration, which started in the public sector in the 1950s, now has an increasing number of private players participating in it. India Today takes.
NSR commenting on market diversification opportunities as SpaceX targets satellite mobility operators with Starlink expansion. “Right now, there really isn’t a high-bandwidth/low latency form factor solution for that market segment that would match the terminal form factor of Starlink,”
As Starlink seeks link to planes, trucks & other moving vehicles, [NSR] told Space News that Inmarsat, SES and Intelsat are among the satellite players that could face disruption from SpaceX’s mobile-facing plans. SpaceX believes it can support moving vehicles without a huge overhaul of its technologies and platform, noting that each ESIM is “electrically.
