IDA’s Science and Technology Policy Institute (STPI) assessed global trends in OSAM by examining key players in on-orbit activities, their countries of origin, the levels of their efforts, their motivations, nascent projects, and planned efforts. We also assessed the potential market and use cases for on-orbit activities, including potential consumer needs and applications, as well as demand from public and private entities.
