Space industry has been rapidly growing owing to its increased utilization in military and non-military applications. The investments in space arena has increased over the years that is significantly contributing to the growth of the space industry. Satellites are also increasingly being adopted by the military forces, and governments are extensively investing in space-based systems for military applications. The U.S. is one of the leading countries that invested $7 billion in the space-based systems in 2016, and it is expected to reach $8 billion by 2020 due to the emerging threats from Russia and China. Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) is one such satellite constellation that provides communication facilities to the U.S forces and its allies. It is a narrowband military satellite communication network that is designed to provide increased levels of systems availability in comparison with existing Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Follow-On satellite constellation.

From 2010-2014, there was a considerable increase in spacecraft launches and the trend is likely to continue in the coming years. This increase is the result of rising demand for mobile satellite services, emergence of new satellite operators, and the growing number of commercial satellite orders.  

Military satellites have gained significance due to the rise in terrorist attacks and unconventional warfare. MUOS is the U.S.’s next generation communication satellite constellation. It has been primarily developed by Lockheed Martin for the U.S. military forces to provide improved and secured communication capabilities. These satellites enable the mobile forces to communicate at long distances and restricted places. As this system becomes fully operational, there is a huge opportunity that it can be utilized by many other countries across the globe for military applications.

There are different types of satellites and each satellite is equipped with different payloads to perform various missions. MUOS satellite system consists of space segment and ground segment. The space segment of MUOS is composed of satellites in space, while the ground segment includes ground stations, communication devices, and control facilities. Space segment of MUOS includes the bus and a communication payload. A modern satellite bus includes thermal, structural, attitude control, power, propulsion and telemetry, tracking and command subsystems (TT&C). There is a wide range of opportunities for the number of the players in the space segment as the U.S. allies are working on the development of sixth MUOS satellite. This development is likely to create opportunities for the payload, subsystems manufacturers as well as the for the system integrator. 

MUOS constellation also provides a wide range of opportunities for other countries. The allied nations who share intelligence and satellite services with the US and also that are into agreement with the U.S. to purchase Joint Strike Fighter will be the first ones to access MUOS WCDMA capability. Australia, Canada, Denmark, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, South Korea, Turkey and the United Kingdom are the allied nations that will take benefit of improved and secured communication capabilities.

Lockheed Martin, General Dynamics, Harris Corporation, Boeing Satellite Systems, Northrop Grumman and Ericsson are some of the prominent players of MUOS.
