Track:
Hosted Payload Forum




Hosted payloads may fan the fires of space-based development and commerce across the already red hot regions of Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, Latin America, and parts of Eurasia. High-profile deals such as EMC-Arabsat and GeoMetWatch-Asiasat offer a template for expanded access to orbit for existing operators as well as new players keen to broaden their horizons. An appetite for regional and national space assets addressing myriad applications and localized needs could make hosted payloads a well-received default choice for quick deployment. Can hosted payload arrangements foster increased regional cooperation in space and on Earth? Will bandwidth scarcity, demand for sophisticated services, orbital congestion, and other factors mitigate for or against hosted payloads in the world’s developing markets?
