overview

SMi Group are proud to announce the 21st annual Global MilSatCom conference and exhibition will return to London on the 5th – 7th November 2019: providing comprehensive overview of how allied partners are working to maintain and sustain space superiority.

Hosted over 3 inclusive days Global MilSatCom is once again set against sweeping developments for numerous national sovereign SATCOM programmes; in particular, the development of the host nations SKYNET constellation – but also across key allied programmes such as WGS, SATCOMbw, MUOS, SICRAL and SYRACUSE. How this sovereign bandwidth can be pooled and augmented with COMSATCOM also remains essential as NATO is set to sign a memorandum of understanding with key partners to deliver future coalition C4i capability.

There also continues to be intense focus on how we remain ahead of our adversaries in space – reflected in the enterprise wide reorganisation endeavours within the US DoD – including the standing up of the Space COCOM & ‘go fast’ procurement efforts such as SMC 2.0. – set to be explored in a dedicated day of US content.

Europe’s leading military satellite event will return to discuss key topics challenging the industry, including emergent LEO mega-constellations, resilience, payload delivery, and BLOS capability – ultimately reviewing how future SATCOM can deliver the bandwidth and connectivity demanded by the warfighter.

PLUS, back by popular demand, we will once again host a dedicated pre-conference Small Satellites and Disruptive Technology focus day on the 4th November 2019, analysing LEO small satellite constellations and how we can exploit these networks to deliver more capability on the ground.

With over 500 attendees, 4 networking receptions and over 7 hours of networking, Global MilSatCom remains the key diary date for anyone within the military space domain
 

 

  • Critical host nation support, up to and including the ministerial level – providing comprehensive coverage of the UK’s space sector and SATCOM goals
  • An international speaker line up unrivalled within other events, that provide key updates from established and emerging space-faring nations across the globe
  • A dedicated focus day looking at how small satellite constellations and disruptive space technology is revolutionizing space-based communications
  • Meet and network with 500+ attendees from defence agencies, militaries, governments and industry over 8 hours of breaks; as well as 2 drinks receptions and 2 conference dinners
  • Explore developments on US SATCOM – analysing growing requirements, programme proceedings and procurement plans

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
