The A&D Sector in The Wake of the Covid19 Pandemic

Top 10 Satellite Solution Companies - 2021

With advancements in technology revamping satellite communications, satellite technology players are increasingly delivering sophisticated and advanced solutions to the aerospace and defense industry.

Machine learning models hold immense computing power that helps in critical decision-making related to spacecraft. When these trained models are transmitted to the spacecraft already in its orbit, the creation of any space debris can be prevented. Artificial intelligence is capable of analyzing data received from satellites and detecting problems to present deeper, actionable insights and facilitate informed decision-making.

The increasing demand for high-throughput data, voice and video links has led companies to introduce technical solutions that support satellite links. Recent developments in new waveform technology provide helicopters with unparalleled communication at high data rates. Advancements in the internet of things (IoT) space are also dramatically transforming the inflight Wi-Fi systems and satellite communications for enhanced flight experiences.

As such, the technological transitions in the arena open up a universe of new possibilities for satellite solution providers to develop and introduce innovative solutions. This implies that organizations looking for competent solutions have to choose from a plethora of options.
