Defence Satellites 2018, 6th – 7th June, Paris

The Satellite industry is developing at a rapid pace currently due to the greater need for connectivity, imagery, surveillance and bandwidth across the globe. Satellites are being developed for both commercial and defence use and these developments in each industry assist each other. Due to the increased requirements of satellites, we are starting to see issues of space debris that causes much concern amongst governments and satellite contractors. Defence Satellites 2018 will discuss the issues and the importance of space situational awareness (SSA) and what can be done to solve the issues/challenges. Other areas that will be analysed during the two-day conference and exhibition is the future of satellites and the developments of 5G and HTS satellites and what is coming next. For the defence industry, military officials from across Europe and North America will discuss their Satcom capabilities and the importance of satellite imagery to monitor borders, warzones and the maritime environment. Other industries will also discuss how satellite imagery assists with natural disasters and weather patterns. Find out more...

Satellite 2018, 12th – 15th March, Washington D.C.

  IRG’s Activities   Afternoon Workshop  From 2pm on Thursday the 15th March, IRG will hold a half-day workshop in room 144B at the Walter E. Washington Convention Centre during Satellite Show.  Hosted by SES, the workshop will feature sessions from industry experts, as well as showcasing technology, processes and tools that are available now and those needed for the future for continued interference mitigation. The workshop will be free to attend but registration is required. Please register here.   Champagne Reception with Kratos To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Satellite Interference Reduction Group, at Satellite 2018 we’ll be holding a champagne reception at the Kratos booth (1700) on Wednesday the 14th of March, 16:30. We invite all of IRG’s members, friends and members of the press to attend.   Live Podcast Session with Kratos IRG’s Executive Director will take part in a special show edition of Kratos’s Constellations Podcast series. The podcast will be recorded live during the Champagne reception betwen 5-6pm. Attendees are welcome to listen/watch! Panelists: Mark Steel, Inmarsat, Vice President of Product Development and Strategy Bob Potter, Kratos, Vice President, Signals and Ground System Technology Martin Coleman, Executive Director, Satellite IRG Location: Kratos booth  (#1700) Description: Congestion is becoming a reality in today’s new space world. With hundreds of HTS and thousands of LEO and MEO constellations in place or planned – the potential for increased interference continues to grow.  How will the satellite industry adapt to meet the challenge?  What role will regulation play in this new environment? What new technology and approaches will be used or need to be developed to address the potential increase in interference?   Machine Learning Panel Session  At this year’s Satellite expo, IRG’s Executive Director, Martin Coleman, will be moderating a panel titled “Machine Learning to Solve Satellite Interference and Manage Future Networks”. Thursday March 15| 11:15 AM – 12:15 PM | 202 Data is literally everywhere. By 2020, the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe forecasts that the amount of global data available will reach approximately 40 Zettabytes.Imagine using this Data with new processing techniques so that we solve future interference scenarios at a faster rate. It is an enormous concept, but if we can learn how to use it properly, collect the data and ask the right questions of that data, we can use it to make decisions, solve problems and educate. This panel will discuss the potential of using this data with new processing techniques to manage future super networks effectively and solve satellite interference scenarios at a faster rate.

Military Space Situational Awareness 2018, 25th-26th April

SMi is proud to announce the 13th Annual Military Space Situational Awareness Conference taking place on the 25th and 26th of April 2018 in London, UK. With the defence industry becoming ever more data driven, ensuring that space systems can operate safely and efficiently is crucial for government and military agencies. The aim of Military SSA 2018 will be to bring together key military, government, civilian and industry stakeholders to discuss approaches and strategies for how a holistic approach to Space Situational Awareness (SSA) can be successfully implemented at a time when the domain is growing increasingly congested with active satellites as well as space junk and debris. In addition with plans for satellite launches and LEO mega-constellations increasing at an alarming rate, the issue of space governance in this ill-defined domain requires immediate consideration to ensure that necessary safe and responsible space exploitation can continue for years to come. As space debris grows, access to space surveillance and tracking (SST) data is now vital. This has led to an increased demand for next-generation sensor and radar capabilities to ensure that nations can keep crucial assets protected and on task to deliver real time SAT data to their operational forces. Further topics discussed at this year’s event will also include how SSA has become a collaborative effort, an understanding of the operating space environment, and how space weather must be considered an integral component of SSA services.
