This year’s conference – Europe’s largest military satellite communications events – will focus on how to overcome operational challenges faced by military satellite communications end-users, such as the difficulty of establishing satcom capability when troops have just been deployed, managing MilSatCom on difficult terrain and securing cost-efficient connectivity.
Speakers will be discussing how to tackle these issues through international cooperation on military and civil projects.
The conference and exhibition brings together over 400 of the industry’s key senior military representatives with satcom solutions providers and operators to hear about the newest technologies.
Inmarsat Global Government will be presenting results from recent trials and operational deployments to show how high-throughput mobile satellite services can increase force capability yet reduce costs.
Andy Start, President, Global Government, will be presenting the evidence on the first day of Global MilSatCom which runs from 4-6 November at the Park Plaza Riverbank, London.
He will also be discussing how high-throughput mobile satellite services can deliver global coverage, high capacity links and outstanding value for money, showcasing:
- Low Profile BGAN (LPB) – developed directly from government customers’ need for a terminal that can be buried under ground or camouflaged and still operate effectively, LPB delivers discreet, unmanned communications to allow concealed surveillance anywhere
- VHF variant of L-TAC – the original L-TAC Manpack terminal which delivers BLOS comms capabilities to soldiers on the ground using their existing UHF tactical radios is now available in a new SlingShot VHF variant. Both are available as a manpack, vehicular-mounted and marine platform. All variants are compatible to enable UHF and now VHF military tactical radios operating in the frequency band 58 to 88 MHz to share the same Inmarsat-4 satellite channel and therefore seamlessly intercommunicate.

Intended for first responder and military use, VSAT Satellite Terminals helps ensure fast, effective responses during critical missions. Supplied in man-portable and airline checkable packages, systems utilize traditional dish equipment to provide high bandwidth data connections through geostationary satellites in X, Ku, and Ka bands. Transmit data speeds up to 5 Mbps and receive speeds as high as 15 Mbps are possible.
