Software-Defined Satellites Meet Software-Defined Ground

  • Post category:In The News

Kratos: The development of commercial operators led to new approaches to improve the productivity of infrastructures in space and on the ground to increase profitability. The introduction of software-defined technologies is considered a major technological trend to reduce costs and improve the efficiency of operations. On one hand, the shift from hardware functions to software enables mass and cost reduction. On another hand, software solutions support the automatization of operations and make systems more flexible and scalable as configurable with a simple file upload. This article will review the potential of software-defined technologies to leverage new opportunities for Telecom, Earth Observation, and Defense applications but also challenge the current value chain.

In-Flight Connectivity | Market Awaits Aviation Recovery Globally

  • Post category:In The News

MSUA: Even after more than a year since the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, the world is still fighting against the virus and its many variants. As a result, sanitary restrictions are still applied in several countries impacting the ability or easiness to travel by air, domestically and internationally. Hence, the international air traffic is struggling to recover its pre-COVID levels. On the other hand, the releases of lockdowns and other measures like ramped-up vaccinations taken at the country level have certainly helped partial recovery for at least the domestic air travel markets. In some countries like Russia and China, the domestic air traffic has already overpassed the pre-COVID levels. All in all, the recovery of the global aviation industry, and therefore of the In-Flight Connectivity market in general, is currently not expected before 2022 with disparities between domestic and international markets.
