MilSatCom Asia-Pacific Conference

We are delighted to announce the 7th annual MilSatCom Asia-Pacific, which convenes in Singapore on 15th-16th May 2017.

With the utility of space as a medium for war growing exponentially across the globe, the Asia-Pacific region is an area where rapid development and growth is particularly evident. This year's conference will provide national updates from key regional nations on their space and MilSatCom programmes.

Our unrivalled speaker line up will provide critical programme updates to look at how SatCom is utilised to gain the upper hand in the frontier that is crucial for future combat. In addition, this year's conference will look at other key topics including the management of space debris and the critical importance of space-based assets and satellite capabilities in assisting emergency communications and disaster response in the region.

Key nations you can expect to hear from include leading Asia Pacific militaries as well as the vital perspectives of strategic partners such as the USA and Canada.
