SMi Group are proud to announce that the 22nd annual Global MilSatCom conference and exhibition will return to London on the 10th – 12th November 2020, covering the latest crucial developments within the MilSatCom community. With the return of great power competition and a rising operational tempo across the Globe, how allied forces deploy resilient networks in contested battlespaces remains a key point for consideration for industry and allied partners.

 SMi's 2019 Global MilSatCom:

Held over 3 interactive days, day 1 will focus on the critical host nation SKYNET programme – as SKYNET 5 moves to an end in 2022 and evolves into SKYNET 6 – from both MoD and industry perspectives; particularly as the SDW and EC programme elements are delivered.
 

As the US stands up Space Force as the sixth branch of the US military, day 2 will be centred on innovation and change within the US space enterprise – where rapid acquisition, reflected by efforts such as SMC 2.0 and AFRL’s Space Innovation Pitch Days - is driving SATCOM development.

Finally, day 3 will centre around key international partner updates, with representation from crucial regions including APAC and Europe; providing opportunities for partnerships and situational awareness of global MILSATCOM efforts.

Covering key topics including SATCOM resilience and hardening, hybrid capability, payload deliver, BLOS C4i provision and the impact of emergent LEO mega-constellations for connectivity – Global MILSATCOM will holistically view the future of connectivity for the warfighter.
 

With around 600 attendees expected, 4 networking receptions and over 7 hours of networking, Global MilSatCom remains the key diary date for anyone within the military space domain. 

  • Essential updates on the UK’s SKYNET programme including procurement plans and timelines, future requirements and policy from all key stakeholders.
  • Unparalleled international representation from critical allied partners and emerging space operating nations
  • A dedicated focus day exploring future disruptive technology and approaches to space
  • Learn key developments in the US Space Enterprise, including how the standing up of the Space Force & rapid acquisition approaches are transforming capability delivery
  • Meet and network with 550+ attendees from defence agencies, militaries, governments and industry over 8 hours of breaks; as well as 2 drinks receptions and 2 conference dinners

    16:45 Creating a New Paradigm for MilSatCom

    Mr Don Brown

    Mr Don Brown, General Manager, Government Services, Business Development, Telesat

  • Let’s re-examine the building blocks of resilient MILSATCOM.   Warfighters have billions of dollars of privately funded capability, in the form of new LEO networks, to use.  What are the essential components to the national security space community: Optical ISLs?  Low Latency?  Unilateral Networking?  Information Security, certainly, but how configured?  Telesat is well into the build of its LEO network, and will share perspectives gained from our work with the US Space Force, DARPA, and the Canadian Department of National Defence.
  • Leveraging commercial sector advances in LEO, the Blackjack program, and the U.S. Air Force’s CASINO program are exploring advanced commercial manufacturing for military payloads as well as CONOPS for DoD spacecraft linking to commercial systems via laser-based communications, and the use of cloud computing with LEO to capture, manage and disseminate data to all types of government users. This session will explore the results and lessons learned in these programs via Telesat LEO in-orbit testing and advanced CONOPS modeling scenarios.

    Brigadier General Pantelis Arapis

    Assistant Chief Of Staff ACOS J6 Cyberspace, NATO SHAPE
    Brigadier General Pantelis Arapis

    Brigadier General Pantelis Arapis Brigadier General Pantelis Arapis was born on November 19th 1966 on the island of KOS, one of the larger among the Dodecanese. He joined the Hellenic Military Academy in 1984, and was commissioned as Signals Second Lieutenant in 1988. During his military career, BGen Arapis has attended and graduated from various courses of the Hellenic Army Signals & Electronic Warfare School, and has been assigned to all available Staff and Command posts in Signals Units, including three unit-level Commanding Officer posts. From 2000 to 2002, he attended the CIS advanced course that runs in collaboration with the Informatics and Telecommunications Department of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA). After graduating the Supreme Joint War College (SJWC) in 2005 at Thessaloniki, Greece, he received a number of staff appointments, such as G2 in Brigade level and as Intelligence Staff Officer in ISAF HQ (Kabul/Afghanistan) in 2007. He spent the next three years (2008-2010) to the Hellenic National Defence General Staff (HNDGS), the sole Strategic-level HQ of the Hellenic Armed Forces, as a Defence Policy Directorate Staff Officer, being the custodian for OSCE issues and CFE inspections, a post that proved to be an extensive source of information and indeed a knowledge hub for various strategic, operational and diplomatic issues. Between 2011 and 2015, BGen Arapis had the opportunity to receive 2 Operational-level NATO HQ assignments; initially (LtCol) as an Intelligence Staff Officer at ALLIED FORCE COMMAND HQ MADRID, Spain, and subsequently (Col) as Director of Management in LANDCOM Izmir. In parallel, he attended the Hellenic National Defence College (via e-Iearning), thus deepening and enhancing his awareness in military diplomacy and strategic studies. Upon his return to Greece in 2016, he served as Chief of the Exploitation Department of the Intelligence Analysis Directorate at the HNDGS. During this tour, he acquired a Masters degree in Applied Strategy and International Security Studies from Plymouth University, and also graduated from the Terrorism and Security Studies course of the “George C.

    WHAT IS CPD?

    CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

    ‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

    CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

    Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

    CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

    CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

    There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

    For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

    CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

    TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

    Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

    ‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

    ‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

    The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

    As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

    GLOBAL CPD

    Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.

    CPD Certificates

    We can provide a certificate for all our accredited events. To request a CPD certificate for a conference , workshop, master classes you have attended please email events@smi-online.co.uk
