The airborne SATCOM market is estimated to be USD 5.4 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 7.3 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.5% from 2022 to 2027. Growth of this market can be attributed to increased adoption of SATCOM transceivers, Increasing aircraft deliveries and growing demand for customized SATCOM on the move solutions
“Increase in adoption of SATCOM transceivers”
SATCOM transceivers are two-way communication using a single device. The development of modern communication technologies such as two-way radios and the Internet began with the invention of transceivers. SATCOM transceivers also provide a next-generation situational awareness system with higher capacity and throughput capabilities. Various airlines are equipping their existing fleets with SATCOM transceivers to improve passenger travel experiences, indicating that the worldwide airborne SATCOM market has room to develop. According to a research paper published in ARTES 4.0 Programme, the demand for supporting UAV communications via satellite in the L-band has increased, offering new challenges such as ensuring satellite link availability and performance during all flight phases (including take-off, landing, and banking) and at low altitudes. Many UAVs can fly beyond-radio-line-of-sight (BRLOS) in unregulated remote air spaces where a terrestrial link may not be available, necessitating the use of satellite transceivers capable of maintaining satellite contact under the most extreme pitch and roll angles. In May 2022, Inmarsat launched the Elera L-band satellite network, and Honeywell supplied the SwiftJet SATCOM service-related airborne equipment.
