November 2014

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[...]

The small satellite has been seen as perhaps a less capable one in years gone by. There has been a level of disbelief in the capabilities of these tiny spacecraft and what they can achieve. They have long been seen as the field of universities or other educational or scientific institutions, where students or experimenters can trial technology or use them as experimental satellites. However, the time is right for a very significant image overhaul for the small satellite. Small satellites are highly capable and in many ways, just as capable as their monolithic big brothers. They are fast to construct, cheaper to launch and cheaper to replace,[...]

With its lengthy design and procurement processes, the lead time on proprietary military technology is notoriously long and unwieldy. With projects going over time and over budget, the military’s reputation for getting technology out into the field is not particularly good. So, the decision by the military to look at off-the-shelf products that are modified for military use is a very smart one. There is so much technology that the average Joe uses everyday that holds so much potential for troops. Let’s take the smartphone. We all use them for a plethora of reasons every single day whether it is for an alarm to wake us up in the morning to che[...]

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[...]
