Satellite Simulator Market: Introduction
The use of satellites is considerably expensive, and to combat the high satellite link usage expenditure, IP-based satellite networkers use satellite simulators. Satellite simulator units provide a platform for network and application design, before the application is established across various live satellite links. These units offer a controlled network ambience, which minimizes the environmental issue presented by a typical satellite communication network. These issues include satellite latency or delay, packet loss, and restricted Quality of Service (QoS). Network connected devices, such as multiplexers, routers, data cryptos and codecs showcase considerable benefits when tested within a satellite simulator-controlled environment.
Satellite simulators enable easy and thorough analysis of network related complex scenarios starting from attenuation loss calculations for earth-bound receivers to mobility factors. Users can test satellite orbits and new protocols in order to evaluate the resultant performance affecting Signal-to-noise Ratio (SNR), packet loss, bit error rate, reachability, jitter, and round trip time, among other measures.
Currently, manufacturers are marketing satellite simulators that are operating system independent. This enables users restrict to a particular operating system to employ such units. Manufacturers are also offering satellite simulators with features molded according to the requirements and specifications of their clients.
Satellite Simulator Market: Drivers and Opportunities
Satellite simulators offer Internet Protocol (IP) connectivity for IP-based satellite network simulation. This feature is expected to be the primary driver of the global satellite simulator market. Growth in the aviation and aeronautical engineering sectors is expected to play a major role in the growth of the satellite simulator market. Satellite simulators primarily aim to validate Guidance, Navigation and Control Systems (GNC Systems) and the on-board software in satellites. Low installation and maintenance costs is also a factor projected to drive the growth of the global satellite simulator market during the forecast period.
Manufacturers are focused on upgrading their satellite simulator solutions and integrating the capability of simulating actuators and sensors, intra-satellite communication protocols, spacecraft dynamics, environmental disturbances, solar illumination conditions, and lunar and solar blinding. This opportunity is expected to enable small- and medium-sized satellite simulator market players to grow steadily during the forecast period.
Currently, the aerospace applications holds significant share of the global satellite simulator market. However, the ever-rising upgrades in aviation and aeronautical science, safety and security applications, and military technologies are expected to enable the sub-segments register a higher growth than the aerospace applications segment in the global satellite simulator market during the forecast period.
