Scope of the event

Technology advances in communications together with changes in the regulatory framework are paving the way for next generation satellite systems. Broadband on the move, improved spectrum efficiency, flexible payloads are the keywords. These evolutions foster advances both for the end-users and the satellite operators, yielding opportunities for new value added services including those that blur the frontiers between Earth observation, telecommunications and positioning. The legacy role of satellite communication as bearer of broadband and broadcast services is also confirmed as the need for global multimedia distribution rises. In addition to that, the gap between terrestrial and the so-called space communication technologies is getting narrower. The space segment is now the natural bridge among heterogeneous networks provided flexible capacity wherever and whenever needed.

The Personal SATellite Service conference, confirms through its 6th edition that there is a need for a scientific forum where these evolutions are prepared. The conference provides a multifaceted floor for technology and networking where all R&D actors including academic and industrial researchers, practitioners and students can meet and discuss.
