Intersection of Launch Innovation & Economics
October 3 at 10:10am
Innovations in launch technology combined with increasing globalization have already changed the economics of SATCOM in major ways. While reusable rockets and shared rides are the most prominent game changers, the multitude of new entrants to the market investing outside capital in R&D have a multitude of promising avenues. How long will it be until most satellites are launched on reused rockets, and what is the timeline on real financial impact? Who are the players today (companies and nations), and where is capital being invested in an attempt to thrust ahead? How will US military spending increases affect this horizon? Speakers from a diverse array of launch providers will explore these topics and more.
