Moving Forward !

Salerno / Vietri (Italy), October 1-3, 2014

The Ka Band Utilization Conference was founded in 1995 to promote the use of Ka Band in commercial satellite communications. Now that Ka Band is firmly established and has enabled the deployment of very successful satellites with greater than 100 gigabyte capacity, it is time for exploring higher frequencies to permit larger capacity satellites to serve more customers.
Many areas of the world are still without affordable communications and more spectrum is needed to serve them. This spectrum expansion will be accomplished by characterizing the Q and V bands using the recently launched Alphasat, which will enable the commercial communications satellite industry to move forward.
The Conference will continue to document the many advances being made in the satellite field, as new technologies and applications continue to be developed in Communications, Navigation, Earth Observation, and Deep Space Exploration.
