The 33rd AIAA International Communications Satellite Systems Conference (ICSSC), the world’s most influential technical conference on satellite systems, will be held on the Gold Coast of Australia from September 7 to 10, 2015. Complete conference information is here.

 

The Conference theme is “High Throughput Satellites, Other Performance Advances and Applications – Keeping Satellites Essential in a Broadband World” and has been chosen to emphasize that even though fibre networks tend to dominate discussion of broadband telecommunications, ours is a wireless world, and satellites remain the only platform to offer communications anywhere, anytime. 

 

The applications of satellites are broad, and range from the provision of broadband services such as entertainment, health, and education to remote areas; to users on the move in areas without infrastructure; national defense and security; remote sensing of lands and oceans; and importantly, transport safety.

 

Underpinning these uses are technology platforms that must evolve to meet increasingly complex applications – platforms that offer broadband data transfer, lower latency, and on-the-move mobility in rough terrain. This has required the development of new network architectures, but also new antennas, terminals and modems, and satellites that are more cost effective and adaptable for multiple uses.

 

This conference will explore these challenges, propose and discuss solutions, and provide a forum for the exploration of the economic, marketing, technical, and regulatory issues affecting these new and planned services.
  

The American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. The 2015 ICSSC conference is co-hosted by Australian based EM Solutions and the AIAA Japan Forum on Satellite Communications.
  

The Gold Coast, centered around the business center of Southport and the tourist mecca of Surfers Paradise, is one of the fastest growing regions in Australia. The Gold Coast is located in the booming South East Queensland region, on the east coast of Australia. Its enviable natural environment – beaches, waterways and hinterland – allows its citizens to enjoy a work-life balance in a different way to almost every other city in the world.

 

Home to 530,000 people, 28 per cent of whom were born overseas, the area is one of the most multicultural regions in Australia. The region started from a platform of tourism and construction and has grown to be backed by an innovation culture, built from a dynamic combination of start-ups, co-working spaces, and research and education institutions, including three universities. Directly accessible from the Coolangatta Airport or Queensland’s capital city Brisbane Airport one hour’s drive away, the Gold Coast is a perfect location to celebrate the continuing success of the satellite industry and discuss the future diversity of opportunities offered by satellite communications.
