ASDEvents—A Latin American Launch (Event)

[SatNews] Following the success of the MilSatCom Portfolio, including Global MilSatComm, ASDEvents is proud to present the launch of MilSatCom Latin America 2014.

While the rest of the world is facing cuts in military spending, in South America there was a growth factor of 3.8 percent over the last few years. The future launch of The Geostationary and Defense and Strategic Communications Satellite (SGDC) in 2017, which marks BrazilÂ’s entry into the high-throughput satellite market, highlights the fact that Latin America is the next biggest region in SATCOM.
