The role of satellite in both health emergencies and for first responders is gaining more recognition. In terms of mobilising assistance after recent natural disasters and spread of disease, satellite has been consistently used to provide urgent communications, an eye in the sky for mapping purposes and connectivity for remote healthcare initiatives. Satellite is really a bit of an all-rounder in these situations. In this issue of SEA, we look at the perennial issue of connectivity for first responders. Asia- Pacific sees more than its fair share of natural disasters every year. Just recently the Western part of Japan experienced deadly la[...]

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,[...]

The level of research and development that is spent on military communications and also aerospace development is quite staggering. In this issue of GMC, that is particularly evident where we have focused on the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and also looked at NASA’s next generation deep spacecraft, Orion and also the US Air Force’s Space Test Program. It is a fascinating time to be involved in this kind of innovation. Dating back to the days of Sputnik, DARPA (formerly ARPA) was founded as a response to Russian innovation in space. Today, the Agency is developing sophisticated technology to be used on the battlefield. F[...]

GVF Directory 2014

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[...]
