Mega-Constellation Impacts on SatCom - NSR's NCAT2 Insights
Date: Wednesday, January 26th, 2022
Time: 10:00AM EST

As LEO and MEO satellite mega-constellations transform our industry, opportunities can rise or fall on the understanding of their impacts. This webinar will explore how NSR’s Non-GEO Constellations Analysis Toolkit 2.0 (NCAT2) helps to identify and understand the potential impacts of mega-constellations throughout the value chain. NSR’s NCAT2 is an assembly of analytical models that x-ray and benchmark LEO and MEO high-throughput satellite systems at architectural and business layers.

In this webinar, NSR will demonstrate key NCAT2 uses including:

NCAT2’s Analytical Framework: 15-Tool Introduction, Datasets, Configurable Inputs, Output, and Visualizations
Constellation Design Criteria: Impact of Orbits on Footprint, Latency, Latitude Reach, Handoff Rate
IP Throughput Analysis: Gbps Calculations at Beam, Satellite and Constellation Levels
Capital Cost per Mbps: Break-even Analysis Based on Replenishing Cycle, Addressability, etc.
Supply & Demand Analysis: Global, Regional, and Country-specific Assessment

Date: Wednesday, January 26th, 2022
Time: 7:00AM PT / 10:00AM ET / 4:00PM CET
