Satellite Innovation Symposium Day One — A Stellar Success

With more than 560 registered attendees filling the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California, the first day of the Satellite Innovation Symposium (SIS) was quite the success.

Today's premiere of Satnews Publishers' SIS proved to be one of the most compelling events in the world of satellite innovation. 
Comments by attendees who were polled related that the various panelists were refreshingly candid and surprisingly transparent with their information. By presenting a single track of subjects for attendees there wasn't the frustration of wishing to be in two sessions at the same time, as is the case with most trade shows. In the symposium hall each session was filled to capacity.


The special boutique area of exhibitors representing their companies and sharing their technologies was also a perfect match for the event.

The list of speakers who offered their opinions and subject matter expertise in the various presentations left little doubt as to the stellar quality of the information being absorbed... for those who were unable to attend SIS, here is the complete list of the Day One speakers and their sessions... perhaps next year they will be able to join the Satellite Innovation Symposium 2018. 

Tuesday's speakers and subject matter are as compelling as day one, and the keynote speaker is a striking example of true satellite innovation, Greg Wyler of OneWeb
