MilSatCom 2017 is an essential forum for the Middle East’s military communications community. It focuses on identifying future regional needs, enhancing capabilities and developing space assets. For the past six years MilSatCom has gathered the top regional decision makers from military and security services, alongside government defence agencies and ministries, equipment providers and satellite operators.

MilSatCom is a platform for building regional satcoms capability. It demonstrates the pros and cons of commercial services, hosted payloads, dedicated military satellites and leasing. It helps users lower costs and streamline procurement processes, ensuring that they can match future requirements with domestic and international commitments, providing cost effective satcom and long-distance communications capacities for regional forces.
