Statements to stimulate your thoughts:
• HTS: does it need Q/V- band Technology to mature?
• Where is the best growth: GEO/HTS or LEO/ MEO?
• Will successful GEO HTS/ VHTS + LEO/ MEO lead to a Satellite renaissance: an Epoch?
• Renaissance in Satcom is led by the Mobile Market: Land, Aero, and Marine connectivity, data applications, and forthcoming 5G!
• Collaboration / Consolidation in the Market – Mergers and Acquisitions are stories to unfold!
• How many players is the right number?
• Constellation Control and Interference aspects?
