Satellite Terminals: Driving Business through Technology Innovation

Satellite Terminals: Driving Business through Technology Innovation

Date: Wednesday, 03 June 2015

Time: 10:00 - 14:30

Venue: Digital Catapult Centre, 101 Euston Road, Kings Cross, London NW1 2RA

The satellite telecommunication industry is, by far, the most important space sector for the European satellite manufacturing industry, representing more than 60% of satellite activities in Europe.

Satellite terminals are an important part of the telecommunication ecosystem, which underpins a broad spectrum of applications from broadcasting to emergency services. With new satellites introduced by Eutelsat, Intelsat, Inmarsat and others, it is extremely important that the pace of innovation in developing new satellite terminals is matching that of satellite payloads. 

This event brings together developers and manufacturers of satellite terminals, satellite operators and representatives of the satcomms user community for an interactive discussion about the present and future of the satellite terminals industry. The focus will be on novel applications for satellite terminals and technology requirements for the above.
