A New World Order for the Satellite Industry

Mark Holmes
Editorial Director, Via Satellite

2021 was quite a year, wasn’t it? It was our first full year of dealing with the COVID pandemic, and in the satellite industry we saw some huge news stories break. We saw people go to space and it make news headlines way beyond the space industry. We saw the rise, fall, and then rise again of OneWeb. We saw Viasat acquire Inmarsat in a ground-breaking deal.

  • The Executive All-Access Pass is our most popular conference pass. Simply put, you’ll gain access to all conference sessions and networking opportunities! Includes access to:
    • Finance Forum: SATELLITE 2022 opens with a series of discussions about how both private and public commercial satellite industry investors are shaping the competitive landscape and driving innovation. Lead by prominent industry thought leaders, these sessions explore the rapid growth of private capital being injected into space, how new space startups are accelerating long-term plans through public offerings, financial analysts’ views on the short- and long-term health of the commercial space market, and much more. Produced in Partnership with Northern Sky Research (NSR)
    • Executive Forum: A chance for attendees to gain the C-suite perspective on the satellite industry, the Executive Forum gathers leaders from each of the industry’s major sectors – operators, launchers, manufacturers, ground systems developers, and subcontractors – to outline the greatest challenges and opportunities facing satellite operators today and in the future. These sessions also provide a chance for attendees to learn how the industry’s leading companies plan to expand their business and reach new markets. Produced in Partnership with Euroconsult and the EMEA Satellite Operators Association (ESOA)
  • Can’t attend every session but want access to the ones that interest you the most? Purchase a Track Pass and get access to your track’s content!
    1. Government & Military Track Pass: Pass holders enjoy access to both the Geo-Intelligence Workshop and the Government & Military Forum sessions. The Geo-Intelligence workshop is composed of four sessions focusing exclusively on the development of new satellite imagery and sensing data applications for decision-making end-users in both the public and private sectors. The Government & Military Forum gives attendees invaluable access to the latest perspectives on ensuring national security, protecting the warfighter, and sharing life-saving intelligence from space, as well as the need for responsible and effective space policy. Produced in Partnership with the Satellite Industry Association (SIA)
    2. LEO & Smallsat Track Pass: Pass holders will gain access to LEO & Smallsat Forum sessions focusing on new business opportunities for the small, cube, and nanosatellite technology industries. Attendees will learn why small satellites have become today’s most dominant commercial space technology, with increasing power and capability at continuously decreasing costs. Sessions will also address the market for global connectivity constellations, component manufacturers, small satellite launch specialists, and space-as-a-service providers.
    3. Tech Track Pass: Designed for attendees who are more interested in learning about the technical specifics of satellite services as opposed to business opportunities, Tech Forum sessions provide deep-dives into the latest research and development driving the evolution of space technology. Attendees will learn about developments in computing, power consumption, automation, robotics, propulsion, ground-based systems, interference prevention, standards, and cybersecurity. Produced in partnership with the World Teleport Association (WTA) and GVF.
