How many times have you boarded a longhaul flight and had work to do and emails to catch up on with no way of doing anything of the sort?

In terms of being able to access your email, social networks and other websites on your own personal mobile device, the 21st century has truly arrived in the skies. Inflight entertainment and connectivity is [...]

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[...]

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.
