MilSatCom Latin America 2015 Conference

  • 22 September, 2015 - 23 September, 2015, Maceio, Brazil

Now in its second successful year, MilSatCom Latin America 2015 is the only regional meeting place for military satellite communications specialists and all those responsible for optimising security and surveillance of national and air space and key domestic assets. With satellites still providing the greatest tactical advantage for current and future operations, many nations are focused on advancing their SATCOM capability; some through the acquisition and launch of national satellite programs and others through the data provided by the key satellite technology providers.

MilSatCom Latin America 2015 is designed to break the mold and create an event that will assist the learning and development of SATCOM programme managers and practitioners through briefings, panel sessions and focused discussion groups. Unlike other events, we strive to deliver real insight and learning experiences through the expertly selected speakers, all who are recommended through our extensive research and consultation that is carried out across the industry.

Latin America has been a prominent region in advancing its SatCom Capability with countries such as Brazil, Chile and Mexico all either launching or planning to launch domestic satellite programs. This conference will feature high level military and government briefings from those directly responsible for advancing these satellite capabilities and after our 2014 event, where we had over 100 attendees, this Septembers' event is set to only continue to attract the regions main SatCom protagonists.
