Smallsat Growth on Shaky Foundations - NSR Feb 2019
"While the relative simplicity and the associated low-cost architecture are enabling (the much needed) easier access to the space applications, the challenge lies in the readiness of the existing infrastructure to support this rapidly growing market."

"A market that has historically been relatively slow to develop will now experience an accelerated expansion. This is bound to put immense pressure on the existing infrastructure and the different stakeholders in the supply and value chain."

Challenges:

= Satellite Manufacturing Constraints - "Tier 2 and Tier 3 components such as electronic systems and subsystems are expected to create considerable bottlenecks."

= Launch Constraints - "launch segment is expected to remain one of the biggest bottlenecks of the small satellite market over the next decade"

= In-Orbit Challenges - "lack of adequate space traffic tracking and management regime"
