LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 4, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ -- SMi Group’s 19th annual Global MilSatCom is gearing up to be the most attended conference in its 19-year history.

The event agenda now features a speaker line-up of over 50 defence satellite communications experts, who will explore the growing demand to enhance SatCom capabilities and to discuss strategies and requirements including the UK Ministry of Defence’s plans for Skynet 6.

“This year’s programme is inarguably the best and most international in the event’s history,” SMi Managing Director Dale Butler said. “Delegate numbers are up by 30% and the event is looking to attract around 500 attendees this year, which will be a new record for the conference series.”

Other key additions to the agenda include an opening Ministerial Address from Harriett Baldwin MP, the UK’s Minister for Defence Procurement; a keynote address from Dr Graham Turnock, Chief Executive of the UK Space Agency; and industry presentations from Airbus, Northrop Grumman, and NATO.

With 40+ presentations from leading commercial players and over 20 military and government personnel, this year's agenda will feature highlights including:

• Updates to international MilSatCom programmes including new nations such as Japan, Republic of Korea, Nigeria, Czech Republic, Germany, Netherlands, and Luxembourg
• Sessions on key themes and challenges at the core of the MilSatCom community such as the Wideband AoA and GovSatCom initiative, the demand for flexibility and resiliency in a contested environment, ground segment R&D advances, SatCom-on-the-Move capabilities, as well as the surging importance of interoperability and allied international cooperation
• Dedicated networking sessions including two evening dinners and two networking receptions
• An exhibition area with 40 booths to help you understand the latest technological solutions available in the market
• Two exclusive pre-conference workshops (6th November) on "Global Government Payload Exploration" and "Interference in SatCom Systems"
