Airborne SATCOM Equipment Market Overview
Defense, government and commercial organizations are harnessing advancements in Satellite Communication (SATCOM) technology to accommodate economical broadband communications to aircrafts moving at great speeds.
These end-users need stabilized Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) solutions with high bandwidth capacity and enhanced performance to deliver high speed and high quality video, voice and data services to and from stations anywhere across the globe. Airborne SATCOM equipment must feature throughput, coverage and flexibility to cater to the maintenance and operational demands of rotary wing or fixed wing airplanes.
Companies are offering a range of airborne SATCOM equipment that facilitate high speed broadband communication through satellite routing for various airborne integration platforms. Airborne SATCOM equipment meet mission critical use cases like video, audio, internet and data.
Companies are offering airborne SATCOM equipment with varied antenna profiles and sizes for installation in vast range of airborne platforms like commercial airliners, mission aircraft, helicopters and business jets. Using airborne SATCOM equipment, end-users can ensure efficient Radio Frequency (RF) performance and high rate response under any operational environment, while also supporting X, Ka and Ku bands.
Impact of Ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic on Airborne SATCOM Equipment Market
COVID-19 has played a key role in derailing the adoption momentum of in-flight connectivity and SATCOM equipment for year 2020 and beyond. Mobility and transport segments like maritime and aviation are greatly hit airborne SATCOM equipment application arenas, amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Air transport and related sectors nosedived with drop greater than 50% in passenger traffic by the end of March 2020.The lagging adoption was persistent by the end of April 2020, with minute and uncertain improvement in adoption.
This trend translated into mounting of sustainability challenges across the global value chain.Consistent bankruptcies and exits, across the aviation industry value chain, as in the cases of Virgin Australia, Avianca, OneWeb, Phasor and Intelsat clearly highlighted these challenges.
