Government and Military Satellite Communications, 10th Edition

Report Summary

In its tenth edition, NSR's Government and Military Satellite Communications (GMSC) report offers the industry's most comprehensive guide of government and military satcom use. The newest edition of GMSC supplies all players along the commercial satcom value chain a complete reference of the industry trends. It gives readers a unique view on funding for satellite communications, demand by type of capacity and developments to watch, and assists in strategic decision-making in a tense budgetary environment.

Government and Military Satellite Communications 10th Edition answers the critical questions facing the government and military satcom market:

  • What is the impact of across-the-board budget reductions on commercial satellite communications demand?
  • What applications are likely to drive capacity and equipment take-up in the short- to long-term?
  • What will be the demand from and impact of military satellites on government and military usage?
  • How will HTS capacity fare in the government and military markets?
  • Will there enough military capacity for government and military users?
  • Are there still new opportunities and if so, which ones will be the most important in the coming decade?
  • Bottom Line: How does NSR see the GMSC market developing over the next 10 years in each region and for each application?

THE NSR DIFFERENCE

10 years covering the government and military satellite communications market, NSR provides the only objective source on trends and drivers shaping growth and restraints in the government and military satellite communications market. A solid track record and a proven methodology is what underpins NSR's Government and Military Satellite Communications (GMSC), 10th Edition report.

This in depth and comprehensive assessment of the market shows the direction that users will take in light of lower expenditures, military capacity availability, greater frequency band availability, increased capacity supply and regional differences.

The pressure to lower public spending is taking a historical turn as wide cuts are enacted by governments around the world whose economies are deflating. This trend is leading to mass budget reductions across the board that have affected some programs more than others, even those deemed necessary to government operations in the past.

At the same time, a big push is made so that this difficult situation will help governments assess needs in light of cost efficiency instead of just prices alone. But will it take hold in this downward cycle and affect a true change in the relation with industry? Or will this mean that the direction for procuring satellite communications from the commercial sector stays the same? The report examines these important questions and evaluates the shifts taking place to provide clear and concise answers as to what satellite demand will fit the bill for governments over the next decade across all regions.

By evaluating and forecasting in-service units, revenues from equipment and services, bandwidth demand, average revenues per unit, capacity demand and segmentation between civil and military demand, NSR's Government and Military Satellite Communications (GMSC) 10th Edition provides the most complete and thorough analysis available on this changing market for the next ten years.
