Amazon plans to launch the first two prototype satellites for its massive Kuiper Broadband constellation in 2022.
If all goes according to plan, the two spacecraft, named Kuipersat-1 and Kuipersat-2, will be launched from the Space Force Station at Cape Canaveral, Florida, in the fourth quarter of next year, the company announced today (Nov. 1).
The duo will test key technologies for Project Kuiper, a constellation in low Earth orbit (LEO) that Amazon expects to eventually consist of more than 3,200 satellites.
"Many new technologies have been invented to meet Kuiper cost and performance goals. All systems have tested well in simulation and lab environments, and we will soon be ready to see how they perform in space, "Rajiv Badiyar, Kuiper program vice president of technology, said in a statement.
Kuipersat-1 and Kuipersat-2 will reach orbit via the RS1, a new rocket developed by California-based ABL Space Systems. Amazon also announced today that it has signed a multi-launch agreement with ABL to provide early launches of the Kuiper project.
According to its ABL specification page, the 88-foot-tall (27-meter) RS1 is capable of launching 2,975 pounds (1,350 kg) of payloads into low orbit. ABL costs $12 million to launch each two-stage rocket. The RS1 has yet to fly, but ABL says it plans its first launch from the Pacific Space Launch Facility in Alaska by the end of 2021.
Earlier this year, Amazon announced that it had signed a deal with United Launch Alliance, whose Atlas 5 rocket will Launch operational Project Kuiper spacecraft on nine separate launches.
Project Kuiper is not the only proposed broadband constellation. SpaceX, for example, has launched more than 1,700 spacecraft for its Starlink network, which could eventually include tens of thousands of satellites. OneWeb has launched more than half of the 648 spacecraft that will make up its initial constellation.
Such mega-constellation plans worry dark Sky boosters and professional astronomers, who have been surprised and frustrated by the brightness of SpaceX Starlink satellite. Amazon said it would take steps to minimize project Kuiper impact on the night sky.

The market trend of led digital signage
Due to the impact of the global spread of COVID-19, the global MARKET size of LED display screens in 2020 is estimated to be $5.7 billion, down about 10% year-on-year. It is estimated that the global outdoor LED display market will reach 12.9 billion yuan in 2021, and 23.9 billion yuan in 2026, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.0%. However, certain application areas, such as outdoor transportation, advertising billboards, and some municipal-related application places, are expected to pick up in the second half, and led digital signage will also benefit from the government economic stimulus. Regarding the development of the next few years, if there are no big macroeconomic changes, it is expected that the global LED display will maintain a compound annual growth rate of 18% from 2021 to 2026, among which the small spacing display is still the biggest driving force for market growth.
The world leading outdoor LED display manufacturers include Daktronics, Samsung, Unilumin and Leyard, etc. The top four manufacturers in the world account for more than 40% of the market share. At present, China is the world largest Outdoor LED Display market, accounting for more than 60% of the market, followed by North America, accounting for nearly 15% of the market.
The market distribution of led digital signage
In terms of regional market pattern, North America and EMEA are the most severely affected regions this year, which are expected to decrease by 7.7% to 6.7% respectively, and their share will also decrease accordingly. China is now slowly recovering from the impact of the epidemic, and stimulated by new infrastructure policies, the Chinese market product Name is expected to maintain the world fastest growth rate of about 3.8% this year.
The markets most affected this year are mainly applications related to clustered events, such as cinemas and commercial and retail venues. However, for security monitoring or control room, it will benefit from the government new infrastructure policy this year. It is estimated that this will be the fastest-growing led digital signage application market this year, with the market share expected to increase from 13.3% to 13.9%.
With the decline of LCD cost, size continues to enlarge, currently can see more than 80 inches of LCD TV, electronic whiteboard into commercial, coupled with the rise of LED display market, commercial projector in enterprise conference space shipment quantity will also decrease year by year.
However, the outdoor LED display screen is different from the indoor LED display screen. Since it is applied to outdoor scenes, in addition to meeting the display function, the product Name screen needs to ensure the transmission quality under direct sunlight, so it needs to meet the requirements of a high brightness display. In addition, the outdoor environment is changeable and harsh, so the outdoor LED display should have strong weather resistance, fully adapt to all kinds of bad weather, and can be used for a long time.
Future development estimates of led digital signage
Nowadays, the limelight of MiniLED backlight display technology is rising day by day. All kinds of information about MiniLED backlight display is overwhelming, which means the comprehensive arrival of MiniLED display technology. At the same time, an easy to be ignored market, outdoor LED display led digital signage market is also booming. According to data from relevant research institutions, the global LED display market in 2021 has gradually recovered from the impact of the epidemic in 2020, and the scale including led digital signage is expected to reach RMB 51.9 billion. Among them, the scale of P2.5 or above spacing LED display exceeds 20 billion yuan, accounting for nearly 50% of the total scale.
