SpaceDataHighway Achieves 10,000 Successful Laser Connections - Via Satellite - May 2018
"The SpaceDataHighway system, a public-private partnership between the European Space Agency (ESA) and Airbus, has achieved 10,000 successful laser connections. The reliability rate has reached 99.8 percent, and during the first one and a half years of routine operations, these successful connections have downloaded more than 500 terabytes of data."

"The system’s satellites are designed to lock on to low-orbiting satellites via laser and collect their data as they travel in Low Earth Orbit (LEO) scanning the Earth. From its position in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO), the SpaceDataHighway acts as a relay, transmitting the large quantities of data down to Earth in near-real time, at a speed of 1.8 Gbit per second."

"Each day, the SpaceDataHighway is able to relay up to 40 terabytes of data acquired by observation satellites, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), or aircraft to Earth."

Satellite operators, data analysts agree on need for speed - April 2018
"Geospatial data companies are focusing intently on quickly acquiring satellite imagery and delivering it to customers."

Jeff Foust's gloss: "executives from several companies said they're developing larger networks of ground stations, and turning to advanced technologies like laser communications, to quickly get images from their spacecraft to the ground and then on to customers. The longer it takes to deliver images, they argue, the less valuable it is to their customers"

"The focus on speed is essential because geospatial data is most valuable when its fresh."

Startup with SoftBank, Airbus investment planning video constellation with several hundred satellites - Apr 2018
"A satellite startup that today announced SoftBank, Airbus, Bill Gates and OneWeb founder Greg Wyler as investors says it has plans to field a constellation of hundreds of satellites to provide global video of the Earth, but provided few details on how it will accomplish that goal."

"EarthNow spun out of the business incubator Intellectual Ventures last year with a mission to record the planet and provide video in real time to users on the ground. Airbus is the company’s manufacturing partner, using production lines made to build thousands of telecom satellites for OneWeb in Toulouse, France and Exploration Park, Florida."

"EarthNow’s imaging payload will drive the cost slightly higher than that of a OneWeb telecom satellite, which is estimated at around $1 million each, he said."

"Hannigan said Airbus is building the satellites using an enhanced version of the OneWeb bus produced by OneWeb Satellites, the Airbus-OneWeb joint venture that is building OneWeb’s constellation."

"Hannigan wouldn’t describe the EarthNow ground system, which would likely require either numerous ground stations or inter-satellite links to ensure real time data delivery, saying only that “each satellite is connected to the ground at all times.”"

Airbus Outgrows Its European Home - Bloomberg
The company’s airliner business employs more than 53,000 people across Europe. And of the 11,000 passenger jets Airbus has built since it was founded in 1970, all but 400 have come out of the region’s factories. Europe, however, accounts for fewer than 1 in 5 planes in Airbus’s order book, and China, the U.S., and other countries are clamoring for a bigger share of production reflecting the size of their markets—an idea Airbus has hinted it might accept.

Morocco satellite launch could accelerate Spanish space efforts - Jan 2018
Regional rivalry: "Morocco’s launch of its Mohammed 6-A satellite last November could accelerate Spain’s work on its SeoSat/Ingenio optical Earth-observation satellite, which is expected to launch in late 2019 or early 2020."

"Budding regional space rivalry?

Meanwhile, Algeria, another regional rival of Morocco, successfully launched its first communication satellite from China on Dec. 11. "
