Discover viable solutions for government, military and civil space communications challenges. We have a wide range of government and military content that provides attendees with expertise, lessons learned and advice from policy makers, top government and military officials, service veterans, industry associations and analysts. SATELLITE 2016’s government and military program includes a satellite services acquisition workshop with the assistant U.S. Secretary of Defense, a Government and Military Forum produced in partnership with the Satellite Industry Association (SIA) and an alternative space access forum produced in partnership with the Harvard Business School Aerospace Alumni Association.


Experience the latest advancements in content delivery and consumption. Immerse yourself in sessions and drill deep into topics of importance to you with conference content designed specifically for broadcasters. Our Broadcast Forum, produced in partnership with the World Teleport Association, covers everything from Ultra-HD adoption to bandwidth demands for Over-the-Top and streaming services. Learn about broadcasters’ bandwidth expectations directly from the networks.


Internet Connectivity is the backbone of the global economy, accounting for almost a quarter of the entire world’s GDP. However, critical digital economy applications remain underserved by the terrestrial backbone connectivity, creating a critical opportunity for satellite operator networks to play a crucial in unlocking the next wave of digital-enabled growth. SATELLITE 2016 features an all-new High-Throughput Satellite Forum produced in partnership with NSR, and a “Connectivity for a Cause” session that explores the power and social responsibility of global satellite broadband connectivity.


Satellite innovation is going to change the way the entire world operates, as the potential of remote-sensing constellations, connected device networks, climate data solutions and consumer technology attracts a new wave of big-name investors and customers. At the same time, the continued growth and long-term viability of the satellite industry depends on continuing to attract the best and brightest minds to the sector. As the world’s largest satellite-focused show, SATELLITE 2016 prides itself on being inclusive. We invite leaders from established, start-up and NewSpace organizations together on the same stage to outline the future of the industry.


Satellite communications are the definition of mobility – on land, sea and in the air. Businesses and consumers around the world count on high-powered mobile satellite communications for day-to-day operations and reliable voice, video and data transmissions regardless of location. Our Mobility Forum, produced in partnership with the Mobile Satellite Users Association (MSUA), gives attendees an exclusive view of a world with complete, seamless connectivity, powered by satellite and hybrid communications networks.
