In this issue of Satellite Evolution Asia, we have looked at the important role that satellite plays in connecting people in remote areas and delivering important services. In particular, we have looked at island communities and the difficulties that they face in gaining access to the connectivity that we, quite frankly, take for granted on the mainland. There are thousands upon thousands of islands in Asia, many are uninhabited, but many do have communities living on them and the requirements from those communities for a good standard of communications are just the same as anywhere else on Earth. There is an unfortunate tendency to forget th[...]

Earth observation has previously been seen as the preserve of the scientific community, used to monitor changes in the planet’s atmosphere and on its surface, and to explain complex processes that the Earth goes through.

The benefits of Earth observation can be realised by governments, corporations, institutions, agencies and individuals. As we have explored in this issue of Satellite Evolution EMEA, there are a slew of start-up Earth observation [...]

The sad fact is that this is the way our world is today. With threats emerging and changing on a daily basis, our military and governments have to be on alert and prepared to attempt to foil threats before they cause harm, or to deal with them in the best possible way. The rise in these senseless attacks has been alarming, and tackling these types of events is a very difficult thing to undertake, but this is yet another example of the ways in which the threats ma[...]

The communications system and service providers highlighted in this Directory have at least one important trait in common: They are all involved in rolling out satellite-based solutions that are literally transforming the way people and organisations communicate worldwide. This fact was brought into sharper focus recently by the Global VSAT Forum’s (GVF’s) High Throughput Satellite Roundtable, where the industry – and many of its leading customers — characterised the satellite industry’s latest impact as follows: Right now, dozens of new High Throughput Satellites have begun providing service in every major world region, with dozens m[...]
