Hosted Payload Forum
Earth observation and weather monitoring is a growing area of importance. We now live in era of extreme weather conditions where natural disasters are more commonplace than ever. With the needs greater than ever for intelligence in this area, hosted payloads could offer an opportunity to bring more capability at the fraction of what it would cost to put dedicated satellites into orbit. Some companies have already gone this route. Will others follow? The demand for intelligence is there. The question is will hosted payloads be key in providing government officials around the world the intelligence they need to deal with ever changing climactic conditions?
