Topic: "Ground Equipments: Unlocking the Industries True Potential"
Today’s state-of-the-art programs and next-generation LEO constellations promise to provide larger pipes, lower latency and overall better end user experience. However, often overlooked are ground systems that need to transmit and receive signals from space. Tracking antennas, beam hopping and equipment cost are some of the considerations that must be included in current and future go-to-market strategies in order to close the business case. This session will examine the role of end user terminals in current and future undertakings as key and necessary enablers within the satcom ecosystem. Technical challenges, timelines, price points and competitive elements will be discussed within the context of determining exactly what needs to be done in order to unlock the industry’s market potential.
