Join us online on Thursday, October 13, 2022 for a free systems thinking webinar with Bruce Cameron, Director of the System Architecture Group and Senior Lecturer at MIT. The talk will stream live on YouTube.

About the talk: “The global market for SatCom is about to be flooded with supply from four new providers. The four major LEO Mega-Networks (SpaceX, OneWeb, Amazon, Telesat) have proposed thousands of satellites, but their network performance and capability is yet to be demonstrated. We review an apple-to-apples comparison of the four for total capacity, and discuss an outlook for this market and emerging technology.”
