In four weeks, doors will open to an audience of military satellite communication experts in London as they convene at SMi Group’s Global MilSatCom Conference & Exhibition on 7-9 November 2017.

This year’s event agenda has been curated to explore quintessential topics such as interoperability and national strategies to build robust satcom architecture, as well as significant timely topics that aim to answer questions and shed light to important issues such as:

• How close are we to fulfilling GovSatCom?
• What are the UK MoD’s next steps for Skynet 6?
• What are the implications and expected developments for Wideband AoA?
• How can ground segment innovations ensure effective and secure satcom?
• What are the latest and best technologies offered by leading solution providers?

“This year’s programme is inarguably the best and most international in the event’s history,” SMi MD Dale Butler said. “Delegate numbers are up by 30% and the event is looking to attract around 500 attendees this year, which will be a new record for the conference series.”
