TECHNOLOGY ASSESSMENT and MARKET RESEARCH
New, Existing, or Competing technology: System expansion - Cost efficiency
For a communications common carrier developing strategic plans, W. L. Pritchard & Co., L.C. identified the satellite technology that would provide optimum delivery of each new service proposed, specifying implementation lead times and comparative costs.
For a major corporation that was offered satellite system investment opportunities, W. L. Pritchard & Co., L.C. determined the intersystem coordination status of the spacecraft and assessed service expansion opportunities, operating constraints from neighboring satellites, and competition from other operators in the service region.
For a manufacturing venture, W.L. Pritchard & Co., L.C. inventoried all the commercial C-band and Ku-band transponders in the world, and used that database to forecast transponder supply for each continental area, in each frequency band.
For a newly licensed satellite operator, W. L. Pritchard & Co., L.C. assessed the advantages and disadvantages of systems that would compete with that of the licensee, comparing orbital configurations, coverage area, launch plans, communications system design, and cost.
