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.

As the satellite sector and the rest of the broadcasting world descends on Amsterdam’s RAI for IBC 2014, I am sure there is a realisation that we are living through an incredibly exciting time.

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 [...]
