IEEE Future Directions: Low Earth Orbit Satellites and Systems Workshop

Free advance registration - Low Earth Orbit Satellites and Systems Workshop


The IEEE Future Directions' Low Earth Orbit (LEO) Satellites and Systems (LEO SatS) Small Project will host a virtual workshop to explore the opportunity for IEEE to make a significant impact in this area. 

The global connectivity expectations of the 1990s based on large satellites (e.g., Globalstar, Iridium, Odyssey, and Teledesic) did not materialize. The new plans based on massive constellation of robust and resilient, less complex and less costly LEO satellites (e.g., Starlink, Telesat, and Kuiper) may succeed because of the increasing demand for bandwidth and lower latency.

Within the next 10 years, the number of functioning satellites in the low Earth orbit (LEO) is expected to increase by 10,000 to 40,000 from the current fewer than 5,000, all sharing their orbits with millions of debris objects. How safe and sustainable will the current LEO services be. How can we help maintaining this critical infrastructure develop? How can we transform it to enhance various classes of communications and develop new ones?
