The theme of the Colloquium is Satellite Services for Global Mobility.
The Colloquium is organized by the Colloquium Co-Chairs: Xavier Lobao
and Alberto Ginesi
ESA/ESTEC, The Netherlands.
It is held just prior to the Joint Conference on Monday, October 14, 2013
and requires separate registration.
Satellite systems are inherently effective means to deliver ubiquitous services. A large variety of
services and applications can be delivered by satellites from UHF to Ka frequencies with a global mobility
as central paradigm. Mobile broadband and narrowband interactive and broadcasting services to
consumers and professional platforms are ever evolving in terms of coverage, performance and cost-effectiveness,
thus representing a valid complementary service with respect to terrestrial networks.
The progressively move towards the integration between MSS and FSS is also taking place.
Emerging services covering safety, security and localization show a promising growth.
Such services include for examples satellite communication link to UAVs, Air Traffic Management,
ADS-B, AIS as well possible new VHF communication channels to ships.
The Colloquium targets both current and future systems and technologies with emphasis on user/market perspectives.
In this respect, views on growth opportunities, the competitive environment and the impact on current and
upcoming service and technology innovations will be addressed.
