The unprecedented transformation of the communications satellite systems industry by nascent NGSO mega-constellation deployments, worldwide rollouts of terrestrial 5G networks, and ceaseless exponential spread of fiber networks demand that innovative applications, architectures, systems, and technologies be developed to ensure telecommunications, navigation and Earth observation satellite systems maintain an essential role in offering solutions and services for humankind into the foreseeable future.
The Joint Conference will explore the evolution and interoperability of telecommunication, navigation and Earth observation satellite systems; constellation and small satellite systems advances; optical and quantum communications; extension of the 5G network to near Earth, lunar, and deep space environments; and the latest results in propagation research at Ka, Q/V and higher frequency bands; navigation; vehicle autonomy and human exploration; broadband data backhaul from scientific missions and remote sensing; and the challenges of radio frequency interference and orbital debris control and mitigation.
Following the recent conclusion of COP26 and the heightened public attention on climate change and its mitigation, the Joint Conference intends also to encourage participation and contributions in all areas of telecommunications, navigation and Earth observation satellite systems, missions and applications focused on Earth observation, climate change, and environmental monitoring and change mitigation.
The selected 2022 theme of the Joint 27th Ka and Broadband and 39th ICSSC Conference is: “Telecommunications, Navigation and Remote Sensing Satellite Systems for Earth Observation and Space Exploration.”
Will be explored throughout the conference in esteemed keynote lectures, plenary panels, and parallel technical sessions.
This year’s event will bring together researchers, practitioners and experts in academia, industry, space agencies and regulatory organizations around the world to examine challenges and potential solutions to address the emerging opportunities presented by the industry’s transformation and the pressing need for climate monitoring and change mitigation. Participants will have unique opportunities for networking, strengthening alliances and establishing new partnerships and collaborations.
