The technology-driven and capital intensive global satellite-enabled marketplace for more than five decades has relied on innovation to fire the engines of commerce. From multi-millionaire visionaries willing to “bet the company” on a new product or service to brilliant engineers laboring over the tiniest “mission-critical” component, entrepreneurs have fueled the development of commercial, government, military, and scientific satellite applications. Who defines the “right risks” to take? How does the value chain of big advances such as, for example, all-electric propulsion drive small-shop innovations in command and control? What visions of the future compel enthusiastic research and development in the art and science of communications via satellite?
