What are the trends changing the space landscape?

Technological and environmental leaps are reshaping the industry, what are they and how will they affect your business?


New Space

How do you grow in a dynamic market unlike anything the world has ever seen before?


The dawn of the entrepreneurial space age—New Space—has been in the making for some years. Now it’s expanding more rapidly than ever, and the space industry is no longer the sole purview of government agencies.


The commercial space industry driven by private organizations – is making giant leaps in space tourism, exploration and satellite technology. Start-ups and small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs) are disrupting the industry and capturing investors’ imagination. Rapid innovation is essential to keep up with market demand, and it’s imperative to get it right first time.



How to deploy and manage the development of mega-constellations ?


Satellites are the main component in the space economy engine, and account for about three-quarters of the $348 billion in revenues generated from space activities. They have played an enormous role in improving the state of the world, and will do even more as an explosion of technology innovation over time enables constellations of small satellites to be deployed with radical new capabilities.


Small satellites or smallsats—those under 1,320 lb (600 kg)— comprise an ever-increasing share. Upcoming constellations of small satellites in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) are expected to add some 40,000 new satellites in Earth orbit within the next few decades. This massive growth is requiring New Space actors to rapidly produce increasingly sophisticated satellites, reusable launchers, and also think about deorbitation.

The dream of a human civilization beyond Earth has never been so close.

Space Travels

How do you make science fiction into reality?


Hundreds of private companies and startups are not only driving down the cost of space travel but also fueling public interest in exploring space, mining asteroids and colonizing other worlds. Since SpaceX had its first successful launch in 2009, both venture capitalists and government funding in private space companies have been on an upward trajectory year over year. Now that suborbital flights are a reality, the next mission would be to go back to the Moon and then to explore Mars. Those accomplishments will continue to energize investment and growth within the space industry.

Geospatial data analytics are going to power the world. We are seeing countless new applications for space data—5G, Internet for all, urban planning, sustainable energy… It will enable a better decision making.

Geospatial Data Analytics

How geospatial data analytics can improve life on Earth ?


Private companies are launching new advanced satellites ready to visualize, collect, and analyze data needed to generate insights that will lead to more efficient and optimized decision-making.


Besides its traditional usage, geospatial technology is now used in everything from resource and supply chain management to mapping and urban planning and development. The space-based geospatial technology and data-collection techniques are allowing scientists to rely on meticulous measurements of ocean currents, soil moisture, air quality, and hundreds of other phenomena to predict climate changes. Such readily available data is critically important to governments working to set policy and monitor compliance with international climate pacts.
