It is a crucial event for the satellite sector but this year, it is going to be even more important as the industry finds itself battling, yet again, to fight off the wireless industry’s attempts to take C-band spectrum away from satellite for its own use. The C-band li[...]

It is vitally important that any fighting force has the most effective communications tools available[...]
