Presentations are made from national militaries and commercial firms from every continent. One is able to gain a sense of the challenges which are common; the various solutions being innovated and adopted; and the convergences in many cases which exist between these diverse solutions. It also offers anintimacy that is not available in most conferences—there is always the opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues begin to establish new friendships with fellow SATCOM professionals.” What have past attendees said about Global MilSatCom?
