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,[...]

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[...]
