Perspectives on the DoD Commercial Space Integration Strategy | Presented by Comtech

Tuesday, June 18 | 11:00 AM ET – 12:00 PM ET

Register Now

The recently released DoD Commercial Space Integration Strategy seeks to align the Department’s efforts and drive more effective integration of commercial space solutions into national security space architectures. Multi-orbit communications solutions are crucial to meet the increased requirements for data and throughput leveraging the best available network paths, building up an inherently scalable architecture, and providing users with the best available connectivity. Join Daniel Gizinski and Roly Rigual as they discuss the value of hybrid networks, technological advancements impacting the satellite communications defense market, along with the importance of future-proofing satellite connectivity to meet evolving user demands aligned with the recently released U.S. Department of Defense Commercial Space Integration Strategy and the Space Force Commercial Strategy.

Space Situational Awareness in an Era of Weaponized Space | Presented by The Future Space Economy

Monday, November 13 | 1:00 PM ET – 2:00 PM ET

Register Now

In our final webcast of 2024, invited speakers will explore the dangerous, yet increasingly likely hypothetical situation that a space-faring nation breaks the Space Treaty of 1967 and brings nuclear weapons into space. This webcast will provide insight on:

  • What governments are doing right now to expand space situational awareness (SSA) capabilities to protect commercial interests in space
  • Whether these dangerous developments change the way we view satellites and spacecraft as critical infrastructure
  • If SSA is now the most important investment the government and industry can make in space


Multi-Core Safety Certifications Save Time and Reduce Risk | Presented by WindRiver

Watch the Webinar

Multicore processors in safety-critical industries are enabling significant advances in functionality, automation, and cost savings. However, the safety certification requirements for these systems are unchanged. Through collaborations between Wind River and leading avionics companies, technical risk and program risk for multi-core certifications have greatly reduced risk while enabling new generation of powerful systems. Learn how multicore certifications can save you time and money and reduce risk for your next safety certification project.

This webinar will discuss:
• Key steps to implementation and certification
• When you need to transition from single-core to multi-core processor safety critical avionics platforms
• How two industry leaders, Airbus and Collins Aerospace, are applying them

Exploring NASA’s Post-ISS Space Station Options | Presented by The Future Space Economy

Watch the Webinar

With the approaching retirement of the International Space Station (ISS), NASA has contracted several commercial companies to develop orbital facilities that will fulfill the need for a wide range of research and business activities in space.

In this episode, we will focus on NASA’S three contracted space station development partners – Axiom Space’s Axiom Hab One, Blue Origin’s Orbital Reef, and Voyager Space’s Starlab. Guest speakers will explain the design approach for all three systems, and compare and contrast deployment schedules, program costs, and capabilities in a discussion that maps out commercial space industry opportunities in a post-ISS world.

Proven Approaches to Mitigating Safety Certification Risk: Is Your Safety Certification at Risk? | Presented by WindRiver

Watch the Webinar

Your safety certification program has a near infinite number of ways it can go astray. Runtime eLOC (effective lines of code) derived from functional requirements, export compliance regulations, runtime security threat analysis and security policy definition, certification requirements/standards, development platform availability and strategy, operating system selection, and software development strategy, all have a significant impact on cost and schedule for a safety certifiable solution.

In this webinar, Wind River’s John Bliss details how these and other factors can impact a certifiable solution program schedule and cost. He will also dive into how to mitigate the risks associated with each of these to ensure an on-time and on-budget development effort.

What you will learn:
• Classic approaches to safety certification
• Challenges and blockages from real world programs
• Cost and schedule risks you likely haven’t planned for
• Strategies to mitigate known and unknown risks

The OuterNET, The Key to Data Sovereignty | Presented by Rivada Space Networks

Watch the Webinar

In today’s world Data Sovereignty is paramount to deliver secure and resilient data communications for Enterprise & Governments around the world. The OuterNET is the first complete, global communications backbone in space. Its next-generation satellites form a meshed connectivity network that never touches the public internet or third-party networks. This unique gateway-less architecture keeps user data above terrestrial infrastructure, resulting in an ultra-secure, high speed/low-latency service, anywhere on the globe. The OuterNET provides true Data Sovereignty for Enterprise and Government communications by giving users the freedom to choose how data travels and is managed via their own private network.

Why the OuterNET is different:
-The world’s first single, global, ubiquitous, independent orbital data network
-Layer 2 MPLS connectivity with unparalleled security, connecting every square metre on Earth
-Networking protocols, optical laser links and mesh network architecture consistent with key Government & Defense user requirements
-Customers retain complete ownership and control of data
-High-speed two-way connections starting at 100 Mbps
-Service Level Agreements with committed information rates and quality of service assurance
-MEF compliant, allowing seamless integration with resellers and existing user systems

What you will learn:
-The benefits of Rivada’s gateway-less architecture design for data sovereignty and data resiliency
-Security on an orbital network
-Use cases for Government and Enterprise customers, including strategic Polar Connectivity and Subsea Cable contingency

Is Satellite Direct to Handset Really Dead? Here are the Real Opportunities for 5G NTN | Presented by TTP

Watch the Webinar

Recent articles have suggested that the dream of direct to unmodified handset from satellite may be more of a nightmare. The technology faces a combination of challenges including a questionable business case, regulatory hurdles and technical difficulties, which has generated nervousness with investors and CTOs alike.

Should they be worried? Perhaps there is a more sensible approach using standards based 5G NTN (non-terrestrial networks) that avoids these challenges and creates an environment that enables a win-win for Satellite Operators, Mobile Network Operators and the rest of the ecosystem as we head for convergence?

In this webinar, Peter Kibutu, TTP’s Advanced Technology Lead, NTNs, will present the real opportunities for the future and how they can be practically implemented.
