SpaceNews: GROWING DEMAND
Supply chain issues are cropping up at an inflection point for the small satellite industry. Launch capacity is increasing alongside demand for Earth-observation data and satellite communications. Meanwhile, the ongoing miniaturization of electronic components enables manufacturers to build increasingly capable small satellites.
Via Satellite: Eutelsat and OneWeb have reached an agreement to combine, bringing together satellite assets in Geostationary Orbit (GEO) and Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) for multi-orbit service. The companies announced the news early Tuesday, a day after sharing that talks were underway. Analysts told Via Satellite that they agreed with leaders from both companies that Eutelsat’s generative CapEx could help the combined company achieve its long-term goal of building a higher-capacity second-generation LEO constellation that competes with rival systems.
