LEO/MEO Systems – Growth and Competition

Tens of thousands of satellites planned for various constellations makes for interesting times. Fleets of relatively small satellites orbiting the planet at  lower altitudes are cheaper to build and operate, reduce the effects of latency and fly in close orbits mean larger numbers are needed to cover the same surface area, driving the need for mass manufacturing and multiple launches.  Current major players include OneWeb, SpaceX (StarLink), Telesat, Blue Origin (Kuiper) and others.  Applications from broadband internet to IoT mean large markets for those who win this race.
