  • (1888PressRelease) February 22, 2017 - As the space domain continues to grow even more congested, contested, and competitive, the need to ensure effective resiliency and protection on future MilSatCom systems is more crucial than ever before. Thus, the 2nd MilSatCom USA conference returns to provide a high-level forum for the US SatCom community to discuss how further comprehensive collaboration can be beneficial to all parties and stakeholders.

    Following last year's successful inaugural event, this year's show will feature presentations, panel discussions, and an exclusive pre-conference workshop led by a line-up of prominent military and defense industry experts. The 2017 agenda has been curated to highlight and to address key aspects of protected SatCom. Key themes will include the wideband AoA and the utilization of ComSatCom, the direction of US space programs and operational perspectives, strategic international allied collaborations, as well as technical insights on future MilSatCom systems.

    Featured speakers include key government and military personnel from US Army, Australian Defence Force, US Air Force, US Department of Defence, US NorthCom, NATO NCIA, DISA; and also key industry speakers from Airbus Defence and Space, Hughes Network Systems and more.
