Airborne UHF-band SATCOM Market Outlook – 2027 

The global airborne ultra-high frequency UHF-band satellite communication (SATCOM) market is experiencing a significant growth due to increasing aircraft fleet globally. Airborne SATCOM is widely used by commercial, government, and defense organizations to deliver effective broadband communication services to aircrafts operating at high speeds. UHF-Band SATCOM operates at a frequency range of 300 MHz to 1 GHz. Airborne SATCOM are highly flexible systems that meet the operational and maintenance requirements of different aircraft systems such as fixed wings or rotary wings aircraft. Mission & business critical demands for audio, video, and high-speed data services on aerial platforms is fulfilled by broadband communication via satellite, made possible only by airborne SATCOM. 

COVID-19 scenario analysis: 

Airborne SATCOM providers are facing short-term operational issues due to government-imposed lockdown to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The delays in projects due to supply chain disruption due to COVID-19 outbreak is draining organizations of their financial resources that will hamper supply & procurement of SATCOM systems by military agencies as well as civil agencies.

The halt of ongoing process of installation or upgradation of SATCOM systems due to lack of workforce globally will take a toll on airborne SATCOM price & demand.

The aviation industry is experiencing financial crisis due to travel bans & grounding of airlines owing to the government initiatives in the wake of COVID-19. 

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers and impact analysis

Surge in usage of SATCOM transceiver, increase in demand for integration of newer generation SATCOM, and rise in adoption of customized SATCOM on-the-move solutions are the factors that drive the global airborne UHF-band SATCOM market. However, cybersecurity issues and high cost of satellite services hinder the market growth. On the contrary, ultra-compact SATCOM terminals for tactical UAVs and need to enhance passenger experience present new pathways in the industry.

The global airborne UHF-band SATCOM market trends are as follows:

Demand for integration of newer generation SATCOM

The demand in new aircrafts can be attributed to the deployment of advanced airborne SATCOM systems across commercial & military applications. For instance, in 2019, Viasat Inc. (communication company headquartered in California, US) signed a strategic alliance agreement (SAA) with Blacktree Technology (communication system manufacturer based in Belmont, Australia) to manufacture as well as provide support services for ultra-high frequency (UHF) satellite communication systems to Australian Defense Force. Viasat will provide 25-kHz Demand-Assigned Multiple-Access and next-generation Integrated Waveform (IW) networks and services, enabled by its Visual Integrated Satellite communications Information, Operation and Networking (VISION) software platform continue to meet military mission requirements. In addition, in 2021, Viasat plans to launch a global ViaSat-3 constellation of high-capacity communications satellites. Separately, Blacktree is developing a range of products including high-gain UHF helical antennas, static and remote-control pedestal systems, filters and diplexers, High Power Amplifiers (HPAs), Low Noise Amplifiers (LNAs), and Radio Frequency (RF) management components. Such demand for integration of newer generation SATCOM is expected to drive the growth of the airborne UHF-band SATCOM market.
