Would GEO operators miss SSL?

News that SSL could abandon GEO communications satellite manufacturing sent ripples across the industry, helping to crystallise a trend that could have even wider implications for the market.

While it would be “kind of a big deal” for operators to have one less supplier in GEO communications satellite manufacturing, “it may not be a minus one” situation.

“Maybe SSL’s intent is to ‘recoil’ on the lucrative market for government and military payloads or address more fully the emerging satellite constellations business,”.
