With eyes firmly focused on the Asian region as the 25th CommunicAsia opens in Singapore, the satellite industry continues to increase its role in the delivery of communications to this vibrant part of the world. Increased capacity demand is coming from various types of applications but most notably for the maritime sector, DTH and for cellular backhaul purposes, enabling the provision of 3G and 4G to more remote areas. In this issue of Satellite Evolution Asia, we have looked to some leading global and regional players to give an indication of where the satellite industry in Asia is heading. The general consensus is a very positive one.[...]

The satellite industry is entering a very interesting and extremely promising time with trends and applications continuing to emerge in the EMEA region. As governments and private industry strive to connect those across EMEA who still do not have adequate communications, the potential for satellite is enormous. Though the job itself is enormous, the bridging of the Digital Divide across the EMEA region is underway. It is a multi-stakeholder project and the ITU is hoping to achieve this milestone by 2015. Broadband underpins this ambition and, as the defining technology of the 21st Century, it has changed billions of lives – but there are b[...]

This edition of GMC encompasses a variety of different topics from drone technology, both military and commercial, to energy sources, to network centricity. An interesting part of the way in which the military is transforming is not just the sophistication of the networks used and their interoperability, but also the ways in which these networks are powered. The military relies upon power and fuel to operate. Without it, the military would not move, it would not communicate. What has stood out to me whilst researching the ‘green’ side of the US military is just how much effort is being put into the development of renewable energy sources [...]

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[...]
