[SatNews] SMi Group's 16th Annual Global MilSatCom conference and exhibition will occur from November 4th to 6th, 2014, in London and will bring together more than 400 of the industry’s key senior military representatives who use MILSATCOM in their operations alongside the world’s leading SATCOM solutions providers and operators.

iDirect will be in attendance at Global MilSatCom 2014, which will give end-users the opportunity to hear about the newest technologies to help them develop more secure satellite communications with services that are cost-effective and efficient, giving them an advantage over their opposition. Solution providers will be able to network with the decision-makers in the Armed Forces on SATCOM equipment and therefore will have the opportunity to make new contacts and get ahead in the marketplace.

The focus for Global MilSatCom 2014 will be looking at current operational challenges faced by MILSATCOM end-users such as difficulty of establishing SATCOM capability when troops have just been deployed, managing MILSATCOM on difficult terrain and the issue of securing cost-efficient MILSATCOM. The conference will be focusing on how to overcome these challenges, be more cost-efficient through International cooperation with both military and civil projects.
