Satellite Manufacturing: In-Orbit Technologies Define On-Ground Capabilities

Date of Event:
March 11th, 2014

Run Time:
16:30 - 17:45

Room Number:

Track:
Commercial Satellite




The global satellite manufacturing sector continues to show great agility in adapting to changing customer needs while providing a line-up of customizable “off the shelf” options designed to accommodate most current and anticipated services as well as specialized spacecraft for evolving applications. Increasing capacity on-orbit remains a key driver, with flexibility a key attribute. In addition to large multi-mission spacecraft, customers are sizing up smallsats and other on-orbit options. What is driving the marketplace as we approach mid-decade? How do price, schedule, payload configurability, and security figure into these drivers? If, as some industry observers note, the government and commercial markets are converging, what impact does this have on demand for spacecraft? What are the prospects for additional sales of all-electric satellites? Will the global availability of low-cost satellites from non-market economy manufacturers disrupt the viability of the major suppliers? Sponsored by Space Systems/Loral
