Although the hosted payload concept dates back to the early seventies, it has only recently turned into a hot debate. Leading industry players such as Intelsat, SES, Boeing, SS/L, Astrium and Iridium have heavily promoted their hosted payload capabilities. Additionally, industry associations such as the Hosted Payload Alliance have been established to augment awareness on the benefits of hosted government payloads on commercial satellites. Driven by budget constraints, government agencies throughout 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.
Despite industry and government efforts, only 10 payloads are currently under contract and expected to be launched before 2015. Especially in North America, a large number of initiatives are under discussion, however, still awaiting for the commitment of leading government agencies. In our webinar, we will address the question of "Unleashing the Potential of Hosted Payloads." The panel will comment on the key challenges and highlight methods to mitigate these challenges. The webinar will close with a live question and answer session.

About Hosted Payload Alliance:
The Hosted Payload Alliance (HPA) is a satellite industry alliance formed to increase awareness of the benefits of hosted government payloads on commercial satellites. The U.S. National Space Policy published in 2010 calls for an increasing role for commercial space to meet government requirements. It also explicitly directs the use of non-traditional options for the acquisition of space goods and services, and cites hosted payloads as one of these non-traditional options. The policy notes that public-private partnerships with the commercial space industry can offer timely, cost-effective options to fill government requirements. www.hostedpayloadalliance.org
