Related Events

Our 8th annual MilSatCom Asia-Pacific conference will take place in Singapore, on 14th and 15th May 2018.

Following a highly successful conference in 2017, with a record number of nations gathering, a key theme that came out of the event was the increasing investment in protected tactical SatCom throughout the Asia-Pacific region.

Advancing technology has rapidly increased commercial and military access to space and, with regional tensions and congestion in the space domain growing, the number of nations in the Asia-Pacific looking to embrace the space frontier is also on the rise.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Hear how nations in the Asia-Pacific region are taking advantage of rapid technology developments to increase commercial and military access to space
  • Discuss the importance of implementing protected SatCom capabilities to ensure secure critical space assets in a region with rising tensions
  • Explore opportunities to develop commercial and international partnerships with key nations in the region including Australia, Japan, Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam
  • Discuss how SatCom is utilised for humanitarian and disaster response across military and civilian life in Asia-Pacific
