Global Satellite Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS) Market 2018-2022
About Satellite Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS)
The attitude and orbit control system (AOCS) provides attitude information and maintains the required satellite attitude during all phases of the mission, starting at spacecraft separation from the launch vehicle and throughout the operational lifetime. The subsystem consists of redundant microprocessor-based control electronics, sun and earth sensors, gyros, momentum wheels, a reaction wheel, magnetic torquers, thrusters, and solar array and trim tab positioners.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global satellite attitude and orbit control system market to register a revenue during the period 2018-2022.

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Satellite Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS) Market 2018-2022
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global satellite attitude and orbit control system (AOCS) market: Bradford, Jena-Optronik, Leonardo, OHB System, and Surrey Satellite Technology.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is rise in satellite-aided warfare. Space exploration has been a diversified sector of the international community. As per the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, it has been defined as the province of mankind and is not subjected to national boundaries. Satellite use has been an integral part of the global economy and is instrumental in providing communications, weather services, mapping, precision timing, and navigation services for shipping: secure cross-border banking, and internet connectivity.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increased demand for multirole satellites. The nature of battles has changed from month-long wars to few days expeditionary battles. For various military requirements, including communication, the military and defense forces around the globe require space capability to meet the demand for more operationally responsive forces.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is associative satellite launch costs. The development and manufacture of each satellite have their set of challenges as each satellite must withstand exposure to the space environment and launch events. One of the other major challenges is the prohibitive cost, driven by safety and certification requirements, which require expertise.
