Hosted over 3 inclusive days Global MilSatCom is once again set against sweeping developments for numerous national sovereign SATCOM programmes; in particular, the development of the host nations SKYNET constellation – but also across key allied programmes such as WGS, SATCOMbw, MUOS, SICRAL and SYRACUSE. How this sovereign bandwidth can be pooled and augmented with COMSATCOM also remains essential as NATO is set to sign a memorandum of understanding with key partners to deliver future coalition C4i capability.
With around 600 attendees, 4 networking receptions and over 7 hours of networking, Global MilSatCom remains the key diary date for anyone within the military space domain.
