The Milsatcom market in the UK has been growing steadily in the last couple of years, driven by changes in technologies and developments in the international space market.

According to a 2018 market report, UK’s space sector grew to almost £15 billion in 2018 with nearly 97% of all UK military activities utilising space in some way.

Milsatcoms 2021 will address the latest developments shaping the Milsatcom industry including policy updates, technology trends, infrastructure advancement and existing environment threats. It’s an excellent opportunity to network with government representatives, leading satellite providers and commercial stakeholders.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

In light of the escalating spread of COVID-19 (Cornovirus) around the world, and after careful consideration the IET has taken the decision to postpone Milsatcoms until March 2021.

People’s health and wellbeing is our number one priority and we feel this is the most responsible course of action in these difficult times.
