SINGAPORE, March 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
SMi Group are delighted to invite you to attend our annual MilSatCom Asia conference and exhibition - Asia's leading military communications event for satellite professionals taking place on the 9th & 10th May 2012, Swissôtel Merchant Court Hotel, Singapore. The largest gathering of high level government, military and industry SATCOM experts from Asia-Pacific.
The global military communications market will be worth $ 9 billion by 2018 with West Asia emerging as a key growth region for the commercial satellite industry servicing it, an expert has said.
Fewer dedicated military satellite communications systems will be launched and the military will need to augment systems with the greater use of commercial satellite communications networks, Gordon McMillan, Director of Government Services for satellite network provider Inmarsat, said.
As military budgets come under increasing pressure, the commercial satellite industry fulfils an increasingly greater proportion of the communications needs of government and military customers," he said.
Hear industry updates from Inmarsat's Gordon McMillan and join the Networking Coffee Break Sponsored by Inmarsat at SMi's 2nd instalment of MilSatCom Asia 9th and 10th May 2012 in Singapore.
