Gerard Donelan, Vice-President Defence and Security, SES: “Dear Industry Colleagues, On behalf of SES, I would like to welcome you all to SMi Group’s 18th annual Global MilSatCom conference & exhibition. As a long standing member and lead sponsor, SES is happy to be part of this prominent military satellite conference and exhibition in London. This is an exciting time for our industry with new technologies and technical innovations becoming more available, from planar antennas to software defined modems and High Throughput Satellites just to name a few. These technologies are a result of our industry responding to the ever changing requirements of our defence and governmental customers. With many governments reducing spending budgets whilst increasing their requirements for information superiority, a challenging environment has been created for us all. Our aim as an industry is to respond to these challenges to ensure flexibility for the missions of the defence and governmental customers, whilst remaining within these budget constraints. New technologies and new ways of doing business are paving the way for exciting opportunities within the industry. This conference is an ideal platform to hear about these ideas in a knowledge sharing environment, involving decision makers, government representatives, military and other leading international industry professionals.”
