Advances in satellite technology, changing business models and growing demand for services are making satellites more relevant than ever. An array of options from non-geostationary orbit satellites (NGSO) to geostationary orbit satellites (GSO) in low, medium or geostationary orbits (LEO, MEO, GEO) are evolving to meet needs for commercial services, as well as specialized applications for earth stations in motion, broadcasting, satellite Internet of Things, and providing cost-effective broadband to rural and remote areas. How is the evolution of satellite technology affecting space orbit allocation – is there space in space? Which satellite constellations have already launched, what challenges have they faced and who are they serving? How can satellite networks coexist, compete with or complement current networks? Are there opportunities for partnerships between satellite technologies, with other industry sectors and with government? What new services will satellites enable beyond connecting the unconnected in underserved areas? What is the vision and unique value proposition of the satellite industry – and how can it be achieved?
