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.

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 [...]
