Space

Commercial space is booming with possibilities.

Aeronautical engineer Austin Link entered his post-graduate career amid the initial SpaceX Falcon 9 launches, dreaming about a future on orbit where, as he puts it, “we could sail the stars, and explore new things and provide value to humanity.”

And while Link isn’t sailing the stars — at least not yet, literally — he is fulfilling his dream to provide value to humanity through his two-year-old start-up venture Starfish Space.

The Kent, Wash., company, which he cofounded with engineer and former Blue Origin colleague Trevor Bennett, secured $7 million in Series A funding in September to build a prototype of the Otter space tug, a versatile satellite servicing vehicle that will provide life extension and end-of-life services for satellites in Geostationary Orbit (GEO). The goal, says Link, is to ensure satellites leave behind as little footprint as possible, and don’t add to the estimated 6,000 tons of space debris circulating in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO).

“That’s important right now because five times as many satellites will be launched in the 2020s as all of human history,” says Link. “That changes the game, in that space debris is no longer just a nuisance or a good Sandra Bullock movie. It’s really a threat to these constellations we’ve put in this orbit.”

Meanwhile, legacy space and satellite enterprises have upped their commitments to sustainability through both investments and innovations in the areas of space debris removal, space situational awareness, and space traffic management. These range from the rollout of Northrop Grumman’s Mission Extension Vehicles (MEV), which have provided refueling services for Intelsat GEO satellites, to the endeavors of communications leaders like OneWeb, which recently installed Astroscale’s next-generation ferromagnetic docking plate to its satellites to enable more efficient servicing.

In one of the most telling signs of sustainability’s relevance in the new space economy, the Consortium for Execution of Rendezvous and Servicing Operations (CONFERS), an industry organization funded by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), has grown from a six-member organization to 51 in the span of three and a half years.

“Space sustainability is a holistic endeavor that involves multiple companies, multiple countries,” says Chris Blackerby, group COO of Astroscale, which launched in 2013 with a focus on space debris removal and has expanded its business to on-orbit servicing solutions. “Just like we have road traffic monitors, and roadside services like the AAA in the United States removing vehicles on our highways, we need to have a similar set of parameters and services in space.”

There are still many uncertainties around the governance of space-traffic management activities, and whether industry coalitions can agree on standards for responsible space development. But while these questions linger, organizations in the business of space sustainability say they’re mostly optimistic that today’s innovations will ensure utopian visions of New Space materialize, and that connectivity on Earth isn’t compromised by free-floating debris.

Preventive Care for Good Space Health

Within 10 years, satellite manufacturing and launch order volumes are projected to reach 24,700, according to a July 2021 report by satellite market research firm NSR.

That’s why companies like LeoLabs are focusing on prevention — specifically, on helping organizations launching satellites protect their million-dollar space assets and improve decision-making.

The six-year-old company, a venture-funded spinout of SRI International, recently raised $65 million in Series B funding to expand its LEO mapping and space situational awareness services. The organization uses radar technologies and predictive analytics to monitor orbital debris and assess the risk of collision. Current customer partners include SpaceX, which uses LeoLabs’ services to track its newly launched satellites, as well as Earth Observation (EO) organizations Maxar, Planet, Spire, as well as government agencies such as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

“There have always been hurricanes, going back millions of years. Because we have so many buildings and structures on the coastline, we care a lot about hurricanes — and it’s the same in space, where collisions wreck the value of infrastructure,” Dan Ceperley, LeoLabs co-founder and CEO, tells Via Satellite. “A lot of people talk about these mega-constellations as if they’re causing the problem. But they’re not the cause of the problem — they’re the victim of the environment they have to operate in. If you’re launching into space, you’re more likely to be hit by debris launched decades ago that you are by a satellite in one of these [new] constellations.”

The organization’s global network of ground infrastructure, including ground-based phased array radar systems in Alaska, Texas, New Zealand, and Costa Rica, generates data feeds and real-time alerts that inform decision-making, such as whether to move a satellite in another direction to avoid collision. It’s not unlike clinical-decision support technologies used by hospital physicians to assess the risks of performing a complex medical procedure.

“We’re talking about predicting a close approach,” says Ceperley. “We’re talking about tens of feet of difference, like ‘You’re going to pass 50 feet apart after you’ve completed 100 more laps around the earth.’ We have to be able to predict days into the future to provide an effective service.”

Boosting the Life of Legacy Investments

While protecting satellites in LEO is foundational to the notion of space sustainability, so is ensuring existing legacy investments are as healthy as possible.

That’s why in June 2020, Astroscale acquired Effective Space solutions, an Israeli company focused on the servicing, repairing, and life extension of GEO satellites. The financial benefits of servicing are clear: Launching satellites costs money, and through satellite launch extension services, an operator can remain flexible as it rolls out new market offerings and can hold onto its spectrum longer.

“This underpins everything we’re doing,” says Blackerby. “We’re able to move from a throwaway culture of single-use space assets that regularly increases risk and decreases ROI in orbit to a servicing culture that benefits all space actors and the overall orbital environment. The space sector must grow on a foundation of sustainable orbital infrastructure and on-orbit servicing is at the center of that infrastructure.”

Clearing up the Mess

The business of clearing junk — while not as sexy as other missions — is even more essential than it was eight years ago, when Astroscale launched. Space junk is a growing threat, as evidenced by incidents such as the recent debris-induced damage of the International Space Station’s robotic arm.

As such, the market for space debris monitoring and removal market is projected to grow by $610 million between 2020 and 2024, according to a report by Technavio.

“It’s still a low-probability event that we’ll have an accident today or tomorrow or next week, but the impact of an event that does happen will become significant,” says Blackerby.

According to the European Space Agency (ESA), which tracks debris objects through its Space Surveillance and Tracking networks, more than 22,000 objects are currently floating around space as of January 2019, but the number could double. Events such as Russia’s surprise Anti-Satellite (ASAT) weapon test this month, which resulted in an explosion of debris, have amplified the problem.

Nevertheless, Blackerby seems encouraged by some of the milestones his organization and others have achieved. For example: In August, the company completed a demonstration of its ELSA-d (End-of-Life Services by Astroscale-demonstration) using a magnetic capture system to quickly capture a client spacecraft after releasing it.

During the release-and-capture period, Astroscale’s Mission Operations and Ground Segment teams checked out and calibrated the rendezvous sensors and verified relevant ground system infrastructure and operational procedures. In the coming months, the organization is preparing for a more complex “capture without tumbling” demonstration, in which the client will be separated to a greater distance.

Meanwhile, Swiss start-up ClearSpace, a private company formed in 2018, recently signed a debris removal contract with the European Space Agency to help capture and deorbit a 100-kilogram piece of an Arianespace Vega rocket left in orbit in 2013. The ClearSpace 1.0 mission, scheduled for 2025, will attempt to use a spacecraft equipped with four robotic arms to capture the debris, and drag it into Earth’s atmosphere.

“Our first mission will remove a piece of debris which was not designed for capture, is uncontrolled, and tumbling,” says Tim Maclay, ClearSpace CTO. “These characteristics present a number of unique challenges that require the development of particularly robust solutions for rendezvous, proximity operations, and robotic capture. These elements will then form a solid foundation for addressing a wide variety of services in the future — such as inspection, disposal, mission extension, and repair — for both government and commercial customers.”

Rules of the Road

Given the uptick in space traffic, coupled with sustainability and debris removal missions, questions as to who has the responsibility to manage space traffic loom larger. But while progress with innovation and rulemaking is slower than some might desire, it is still being made.

As Politico reported in May, the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, the world’s largest aerospace technical society, is stepping up its efforts to ensure the commercial air traffic system is coordinated with expanding space traffic. The organization reportedly established a committee to consider the integration between space traffic management and air management, and to establish (at least in the U.S.), who is responsible for overseeing space debris/space traffic management.

And in June 2021, the European Space Agency announced plans to roll out a space sustainability rating system, which will score space operators on the sustainability of their missions, to increase transparency and recognize responsible behavior.

Meanwhile, the Space Data Association (SDA) is working alongside space situational awareness software company Comspoc to provide governments in the U.S. and Europe with the understanding and tools they need to develop their own space traffic management capabilities, which will ultimately improve space safety for all operators.

“We are continually looking at ways to improve our systems and processes, as well as driving change within the industry as a whole,” says Pascal Wauthier, SDA chairman and executive director.

The SDA also worked with Comspoc to conduct a study to demonstrate the importance of fusing different measurements data and satellite information to improve the accuracy of alerts and collision warnings.

“As the use of space increases, so does the complexity of aggregating the data available,” says Wauthier. “The existing data-sharing solutions certainly reduce the risks associated with in-orbit collisions. However, with the number of satellites increasing, there is a distinct need for development. Beyond advances in systems, we also must review what data we are collecting to support effective data fusion. Could we share information regarding maneuverability? Do we know a satellite’s future movements? Data sharing the relevant information is critical.”

“We also feel that governments have a responsibility for space traffic management,” he continues. “The use of space and satcom is critical to many aspects in day-to-day life, and there must be a coordinated approach to its management. Input from governments would ensure that all space users are adhering to standards to prevent in-orbit events which could have a detrimental effect on all space users.”

Satellite

Researchers have developed a way to use satellite imaging data to create 3D images that could quickly detect changes on the Earth’s surface, a new study says.

The tool could detect significant natural disasters in remote regions of Earth soon after they happen, giving first responders accurate information about the needs of the region affected.

The Planetscope satellite constellation, operated by the satellite data company Planet, collects weekly and sometimes daily images of the entire Earth. On average, its fleet of Cubesats, or miniature satellites, has about 1,700 images of every location on Earth. The data they capture has been used to monitor the spread of wildfires, detect changes in crop health and survey areas of deforestation.

That kind of coverage is unprecedented, said Rongjun Qin, co-author of the study and an associate professor of civil, environmental and geodetic engineering at The Ohio State University.

“There are a lot of great benefits in terms of having satellites cover the globe very quickly,” said Qin, who is also a core faculty member of Ohio State’s Translational Data Analytics Institute. “We’re focused on informing the community about changes to our cities, forests and ecosystems.”

The study, published in the Journal GIScience and Remote Sensing, found that Planetscope’s vast datasets could be used to create 3D reconstructions, or digital surface models, of any given area.

“Remote sensing could help us estimate the area impacted by a natural disaster,” Qin said. “We could figure out how many people to send over for rescue operations, and observe the level of damage these events actually create.”

Previous remote-sensing-based disaster studies have been limited by their lack of available data and coverage and their resolution, or how frequently images are collected or updated.

For instance, many people are familiar with Google Earth, a computer program that renders a 3D representation of the globe using satellite images and aerial photography. But the popular program is one of the reasons why Qin’s team wanted to create a model capable of a much higher resolution, or update rate.

“Some places on the site have very nice 3D reconstructions,” Qin said. “But there are a lot of places where those images attached to the Earth are distorted.”

Purely flat images overlaid on a globe can make objects or locations on the map appear out of scale with each other, and negatively influence the entire program’s accuracy.

However Qin’s 3D reconstructions, which take into account different elevation levels and landscapes, are accurate down to about 6 meters from the ground. In terms of mapping data, he said it’s akin to achieving “almost approximately one pixel accuracy.”

And because Planetscope’s data is open access to educators, other scientists can use the same datasets the study used to create their own simulations. According to Qin, for an area as big as Ohio State’s Columbus campus (1,600 acres), it would take less than an hour to turn satellite images into an accurate 3D reconstruction of the region.

But to put their method to the test, Qin’s team devised three different case studies, or experiments using thousands of Planetscope images collected between 2016 and 2021.

One test case showed that they could use the satellite images to make a 3D reconstruction of an urban and a rural area in Spain. A second test case showed that they could detect 3D changes over time in an urban and a forested area near Allentown, Pennsylvania.

To determine how good their model was at post-disaster assessment, one experiment investigated a glacial area in Chamoli, India.

Last year, the area around the region experienced a devastating flood that killed hundreds of people and destroyed two nearby power plants. Advances in satellite technology later revealed that the flood was caused by a rock and ice avalanche.

Their results showed that their model could not only recreate the changed topography that led to the disaster, but account for the volume of the rocks and ice in the avalanche. “We verified that Planetscope’s digital surface model can be used to evaluate mass changes for similar global natural disasters to the avalanche event,” said Qin.

Qin’s findings will help engineer better ways to utilize satellite data, especially as the number of satellites and their various applications grow.

“This is still in its incubation stage and will still require some engineering efforts,” he said, “but I think it’s going to be a big deal in the industry and for scientists interested in combating climate change.”

As such, I am delighted today to announce the next steps in GX’s development, in partnership with Airbus, which will ensure that our customers continue to benefit from GX’s ground-breaking technology and capabilities for many years to come.

Worldwide demand for mobile broadband connectivity has grown exponentially in recent years and we expect this trend to continue. This next phase in the evolution of our GX network provides a dynamic and powerful answer to the challenges created by this growth in demand, building on the strong foundations we have already established”.

The small satellite market is an integral part of any economy for the development of infrastructure for commercial companies, government agencies, telecom, and space industry. It is an artificial object which is intentionally placed into the orbit. This object is called as artificial satellite and it acts as cell towers in the sky which transmits data from one point on the earth to another. They enhance missions which last for more than 15 years in the vacuum of the space at extreme temperature and radiations. Satellites vary based on their frequency, orbit, and missions. They are manufactured for different purposes such as telecommunication, navigation, military, space science, remote sensing, and others.

Small satellite market

The Small Satellite Market is Segmented by Type (Minisatellite, Microsatellite, Nanosatellite, and Others), Application (Earth Observation & Remote Sensing, Satellite Communication, Science & Exploration, Mapping & Navigation, Space Observation, and Others), and End User (Commercial, Academic, Government & Military, and Others). The report covers global opportunity analysis and industry forecasts from 2021 to 2030.

The global small satellite market size was valued at USD 3.2 Billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 13.7 Billion by 2030 growing at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 16.4%. Key drivers of the small satellite market include the rising demand for compact satellites due to their low launch, high computing capability, and lower development cycle.

Small satellite market


Further, the growing need for high-resolution imaging services around the globe and increasing demand for more satellite data is expected to provide lucrative opportunities for the growth of the small satellite market. On the other hand lack of dedicated launch vehicles and payload, accommodation is expected to hamper market growth but growing demand from the commercial sector will increase the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Rising Demand for Compact Satellites

Small satellites offer a range of benefits to manufacturers from lower development cycle, cost-effective, less weight, size, and the ability to do remote sensing, complex computing activities in communication, commercial, and space research. Moreover, microsatellites and nanosatellites are the types of small satellites that have low launch costs, can develop and deploy around an orbit in less than 8 months than a traditional satellite which takes 5 to 15 years to develop, and settle. Due to their cheaper development costs and advanced computing capabilities, the demand for small satellites is rising among manufacturers. Therefore increasing demand due to decreased cost and development time of small satellites will drive the growth of the small satellite market during the forecast period.

Need for high-resolution imaging services and rising demand for more satellite data

Companies are launching constellations of small satellites including nano and microsatellites for space exploration, defense, mapping, observation, and telecommunication services for high-speed space-based internet connectivity across the globe. These satellites have the capability to record high-definition video and images for monitoring forest cover, agriculture, marine industry, transportation, etc. In addition to it, the growing need for earth observation services for the detection of climate change, weather patterns, and proper management of land and water resources is also facilitating the need for high-resolution imagery.  Thus the need for high-resolution videos and images is only going to rise rapidly in the future further augmenting the growth of the small satellite market during the forecast period.

Lack of launch vehicle, payload accommodation, and growing demand from the commercial sector

Small satellites have their own set of restrictions as they lack proper dedicated launch vehicles of their own. Further, due to their small size and volume several key scientific types of equipment, additional propellant, and payload capacity is restrained. They also lack proper power generation due to a lack of propulsion systems for orbit maneuvering. These factors will restrict the market growth. On the other hand, owing to their low-cost feature small satellites have found widescale adoption in commercial organizations for broadband internet, satellite TV, and other services. As they are lightweight and made with reusable hardware components leading to immense processing power the adoption rate has been large scale in many organizations. Therefore the rapid deployment of small satellite services by commercial organizations is expected to fuel the growth of the satellite market during the forecast period.

Major Factors Driving the Growth of Small Satellite market are:

The primary driving factor supporting the growth of the small satellite market during the forecasted period is an increase in satellite manufacturers’ attention on the creation of compact satellites due to the decreased cost and development time of small satellites.

In addition to it, ride sharing launch programs have boosted the demand for small satellites. These programs provide more access to space exploration, have the ability to send multiple satellites into higher orbits and reduce launch costs. The time taken to deploy is also decreased as small satellites can easily fit into ride sharing payloads along with other objects. On the other hand the cost of manufacturing is reduced as the need for bulky and expensive propulsion systems are eliminated as the constellation of satellites can directly go to higher orbits. Moreover these satellites are made using reusable low cost hardware and technology.

Furthermore, small satellites allow for a wide range of scientific investigations and technology demonstrations to be carried out in orbit with relative ease. This in turn is expected to further drive the growth of the small satellite market. 

Trends Influencing The Growth Of Small Satellite Market:

An increase in demand for compact satellites is expected to drive the growth of the small satellite market. Small satellites manufactured save a lot of money. This helps to remove barriers to reaching and exploring space, resulting in a spike in tiny satellite popularity since their beginnings. Furthermore, depending on the requirements, a small satellite could be manufactured and launched into orbit for less money than regular satellite missions. Aside from the weight and size advantages, the main benefit of small satellites is the short time it takes to create them. A traditional or large satellite takes 5 to 15 years to create and install in orbit, whereas a CubeSat may discover a need in less than 8 months and position itself in the desired orbit.

An increase in demand for high-resolution imaging services globally is expected to further propel the growth of the small satellite market. High-resolution cameras capable of capturing video at a rate of 25 frames per second are built into small satellites. The video data and images from this satellite will be used to monitor forestry, agriculture, urban growth, and marine transport. Monitoring agricultural fields, detecting climatic changes, disaster mitigation, meteorology, and a variety of other services are all covered by Earth observation services. The US government is currently the largest buyer of satellite imagery. As a result, most smallsat companies, both domestic and international, see the US government as a reliable long-term customer with which to begin. 

Commercial organizations’ increased focus on the deployment of advanced satellite services presents an opportunity for the small satellite market to grow. Small satellites have been used to provide cutting-edge services such as broadband internet, satellite TV, and other services in commercial organizations thanks to satellite manufacturers’ intense focus on lowering the cost of small satellites. Small satellites can be constructed using reusable and low-cost hardware and technology. Small satellites do not require a specialized launch vehicle like regular satellites because they are compact and lightweight, lowering launch costs by up to 40%. Because of the miniaturization of components and software, established private companies and SMEs have begun to invest in small satellites.
