“Smart Strategies, Giving Speed to your Growth Trajectory”

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI100860 | Status : Ongoing



Optical satellite communication is a wireless telecommunication network that operates on optical frequency as a medium to deliver data signals at high bit-rate. Optical satellite communication uses free space as a medium for communication. The optical satellite consists of a transmitter, receiver, and channel. Optical satellite communication has various advantages over RF satellite system that include a wider bandwidth, larger capacity, low power consumption, better security measures, more compact equipment, higher immunity against unauthorized interfaces.

Governments of various countries are investing in resources for the development of optical satellite communication to generate a high information rate. The increasing investments by government and key players in the telecommunication industry would help to improve the connectivity and increase the optical satellite communication market. According to the sources, during 2016-2018, SpaceX constellation has invested around US$ 1,185 Mn for various space projects including ‘The Big Falcon Rocket’, ‘Falcon 9’ and others. Furthermore, the global space economy was estimated at around US$ 345 Bn by the end of 2017.
