SMi Group are proud to announce the launch of the inaugural MilSatCom USA which will take place in Arlington, Virginia on 28th-29th June 2016.
With growing external threats to US Space Assets, greater focus on streamlining the MilSatCom acquisition process and a greater desire for international partnering in the US, this event will be a great opportunity for the US SatCom community and allies to meet and discuss how greater progress can be made. This forum will bring together the key government and military personnel as well as industry and this will ensure a highly productive and beneficial meet for all parties.
Topics addressed include key aspects of protected SatCom, such as the protected tactical waveform, jam resistance, low probability of intercept, and the integration of ComSatCom for military communications. In line with the need to ensure greater resiliency, also addressed will be robustness of networks and the strengthening of MilSatCom architectures.
