Our 4th Annual MilSatCom Asia Pacific event will be convening on the 14th-15th May 2014. Given Singapore’s launch into the space and satellite industry with the new Singapore Office for Space Technology & Industry announced this summer, we decided to hold our conference again in the Asia hub Singapore. This initiative is made up of many different organisations including the Singapore Armed Forces and according to various sources, will have a profound impact on Singapore’s satellite industry. As well as exploring the new satellite opportunities in both the civil and defence sectors, this year’s conference will be focusing particularly on the implications of the US forces moving out to Asia, new technological advancements such as picosatellites and maritime security and other issues facing the industry such as cost-effective usage of satellites.

Why should you attend this event:

  • Hear from a technical expert about emerging satellite programmes in Asia
  • Learn about the US Forces pivot to the Pacific and implications for the SatCom industry in Asia from US representatives
  • Explore picosatellites and their implications for the future of Maritime from the Hellenic Navy
