Global MilSatCom 2019

SMi Reports: Global MilSatCom 2019 to commence on 5th, 6th and 7th November in London with an anticipated 20% attendance increase from last year.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, September 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With 2019 an essential year, for both the host nation’s SKYNET programme, disruptive ‘go fast’ efforts being pioneered in the US and NATO signing a new alliance-wide MOU – SMi Group will be hosting the 21st annual Global MilSatCom conference and exhibition in London on the 5th, 6th and 7th November at the QEII Conference Centre.

With nearly 600 attendees expected, Global MilSatCom is a key calendar date for satellite professionals across the alliance. Last year’s attendance grew by over 20% and attracted the largest ever geographical spread in its history, with attendees from 35 countries.

Broken into 4 dedicated days of content, this year’s meeting is set out to cover mission critical updates from national programmes from the US, Europe and the wider international community.

Once again, there will also be a pre-conference Small Satellites and Disruptive Technology focus day on the 4th November at St James’ Court, London, which will explore developments in LEO small satellite constellations and how we can exploit these networks to deliver more capability on the ground.

The focus day will bring together leading commercial solution providers, those at the cutting edge of small satellite R&D (including Oxford Space Systems from the Harwell Science & Innovation Campus) and government end-users – to discuss what future trends in constellation development might have here on the ground.

Critical coverage of the UK’s SATCOM programme remains a key reason for attendance at Global MilSatCom. UK MoD presentations on day-one of the conference, will outline the host nation’s vision for future MILSATCOM capability with presentations at all levels covering: Skynet 5 service delivery wrap, the future of Skynet 6 (which is set to provide the backbone of UK military capability until 2040 and beyond), terminals and more.

Of course, unparalleled networking will be a key function of the forum, with 16 hours of breaks, two drinks receptions and two (invitation only) conference dinners, hosted by leading industry sponsors, Lockheed Martin, SES Networks, Eutelsat, Airbus. These sessions will bring together those setting requirements, procurement officers and end users to foster new working relationships.

The two exhibition rooms will provide both system integrators and government stakeholders the ability to network with an array of exhibitors. 2019 sponsors and exhibitors include: Lead Sponsor: SES Networks, Gold Sponsor: Airbus, Silver Sponsor: Eutelsat, Sponsors: Avanti, COMSAT, GetSAT, GovSat, Inmarsat, Intelsat General, Kratos, Lockheed Martin, Laser Communications Coalition (LCC), Northrup Grumman, Newtec, Oneweb, Raytheon, SES Government Solutions, Telesat, Thales, Viasat, Exhibitors: Datapath, Hytec Inter, Idirect, Inster, Marlink, Media Broadcast Satellite, NovelSat, PlaneWave Instruments, ReQuTech, SCISYS UK, Skyrora, Spectra Group, Teledyne, US Air Force, Xtar.
