Aspects of Engalco’s B-SAT1 Report
Example: Boeing’s 702HP Spacecraft
Constituting the new Inmarsat 5 constellation three of these 702HP spacecraft will be launched – the first in 2014. The transponder in each 702HP satellite contains 89 K/Ka-band modules. The global, high-capacity services will be supplied by Avanti Communications.
B-SAT1 focuses on the ground-based K/Ka-band transceivers (TxRx) and the mass-manufacture of these general types of products is already taking place in China.
For these general types of products the total available (global) markets in year 2010 amounted to around one billion US$:
TxRx = transceivers
