Assessing the public value of satellite communications

Plum, Aegis and Britten Consulting advised the European Space Agency on the application of the public value framework to assess the value of satellite spectrum use.

This involved consideration of a number of case studies on different classes of satellite services across various frequency bands, including fixed satellite services (FSS), mobile satellite services (MSS) and broadcast satellite services (BSS). The case studies were used to illustrate the socio-economic costs and benefits of these services and the implications of potential reallocation of spectrum to other uses.
