Introduction to Non-geostationary Satellite Constellations

Course Description

Non-geostationary satellite constellations will guarantee true geographic universal broadband access for the world; however, they pose challenges to regulators as no single set of rules and regulations will fit them all (unlike with traditional geostationary satellites). The session will include a technical overview (the different orbits (LEO, MEO), frequency bands (Ku, Ka, Q, V)) as well as insight into the various business plans being offered (users, verticals, markets); and in addition, learn about how regulators can adapt existing regimes to accommodate the full potential these systems promise to bring nations around the globe.
