Conference Documentation: MilSatCom Asia-Pacific

SMi Group's are delighted to announce the 6th annual MilSatCom Asia-Pacific, which convenes in Singapore on 26th-27th May 2016. This year's conference will provide national updates on space and MilSatCom programmes and how the development of these programmes is satisfying current critical regional requirements.

Our unrivalled speaker lineup will have critical SatCom programme updates from across Asia-Pacific as well as the strategic role of the USA and Canada in the region. Also, independent organisations such as UNOOSA and ITU will explain how space-based assets and satellite are critical for emergency communications and disaster response in the region.

Space is becoming more apart of modern and political warfare and the current climate is rapidly evolving in Asia-Pacific. Japan have recently changed their overall defence policy and space will be a key component for national security and the likes of Malaysia and India are developing their national space programmes. In this backdrop, MilSatCom Asia-Pacific will prove to be a critical conference that will allow for greater regional collaboration to both combat external threats but also enhance disaster response with effective use of regional space assets.
