This is the second video in our series on the low Earth orbit (LEO) satellite industry. Find the first video here. Low-earth orbit (LEO) satellites have received considerable attention, with many launching into orbit and more expected to launch in the coming years. The use of LEO satellites for broadband internet (among other applications) is an area of considerable policy interest as many innovators try to compete with incumbent technologies and firms. The public policy issues, such as spectrum and orbital space allocation, international coordination, and government funding, will depend heavily on policymaker knowledge and expertise. However, most policymakers are relatively new to LEO satellites as they work to design the public policy around them. In this video, we will focus on the basics of LEO satellites to help policymakers and others better understand this technology.
