Following the success of our MilSatCom Portfolio including the world-renowned Global MilSatCom we are proud to present the launch of MilSatCom Latin America 2014.

While the rest of the world is facing cuts in military spending, in South America there was a growth of 3.8% in the last few years. The future launch of The Geostationary and Defense and Strategic Communications Satellite (SGDC) in 2017, which marks Brazil’s entry into the high-throughput satellite market highlights the fact that Latin America is the next biggest region in SatCom.
