Hosted Payloads: The View From Within

DUBLIN, Ireland, December 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Following discussions with the Hosted Payload Alliance it was decided to pursue development of a report on government-funded secondary payloads on a commercial satellite. This report identifies the hosted payload launches in the past as well as the hosted payloads currently contracted to be launched before 2015.

Although the hosted payload concept dates back to the early seventies, it has only recently turned into a hot debate, with the establishment of industry associations augmenting awareness of the benefits of hosted government payloads on commercial satellites. In parallel, leading industry players are heavily promoting their own hosted payload capability.

Due to budget restraints, government agencies around the world are increasingly open to adopting the hosted payload concept. As a result, the requirements for government and industry related to hosted payloads are converging. The report identifies 50 hosted payload launches in which primarily the U.S. and Europe have dominated the initiatives.

Despite industry and government efforts, only 11 payloads are currently under contract and expected to be launched before 2015. Europe appears to have built up a steady flow of hosted payloads with ESA as the propelling force. Publicly announced follow-on missions in North America are still limited. Numerous initiatives are under discussion yet are currently awaiting the commitment of leading government agencies such as NASA and the DoD to boost the deal flow over the next five years.

This report not only identifies the key challenges for each stakeholder group involved in hosted payload programs but also highlight lessons learned and best practices to manage and mitigate these challenges.
