NSR’s Government + Military Satellite Communications, 12th Edition Provides A Roadmap So You Don't Get Lost

[SatNews] As the debate continues to heat up between MILSATCOM and COMSATCOM, NSR’s Government and Military Satellite Communications, 12th Edition report explores the market opportunities available to the satellite industry. With over a decade of insights and analysis, the longest-running report on the government and military satellite communications market provides an in-depth view at the drivers, regional trends, and capacity demand through 2024.

On the footsteps of wider introduction of HTS-based offerings into the overall satellite industry, and an on-going ‘reset’ of U.S. Government SATCOM spending, the report provides a roadmap for future capacity trends, regional developments, shifts in vertical markets, and the on-going balance between commercial and proprietary capacity. The report provides a bottom-up approach to the market, giving a clear view on how to navigate this “new-normal” of government SATCOM spending.

NSR’s Government and Military Satellite Communications, 12th Edition continues to provide detailed and event-driven scenarios to provide a bottom-line view on the major ‘what-ifs’ driving the market—more proprietary capacity, emerging regional conflicts, procurement reform, and other factors—providing actionable intelligence to current or prospective players in the government SATCOM market.

Key Questions

  • Current state of Government SATCOM Programs, including an update on the “COMSAT vs. GOVSAT” debate for communication services, acquisition reform update, and a run-down of major national satellite programs.
  • Bulk Leasing or Managed Services? Are “Managed Services” more hype than fact?
  • Mil-Ka or X-band? Which market provides a better opportunity for commercial operators—Is it an either/or question?
  • Are UAS becoming the ‘tool of choice’ for U.S. involvement overseas, and is there a market beyond U.S./NATO for SATCOM-equipped UAS platforms?
  • Which regions are emerging as SATCOM hot-spots?
