The world’s leading space firms come together at Satellite 2017

From 6 to 9 March Washington hosted SATELLITE 2017, the world’s leading telecommunications-satellite event. As in every previous year, GMV was one of the attendees.

This is the world’s best showcase for the leading satellite-telecommunication firms’ most groundbreaking proposals and projects. It is the ideal venue for networking and developing ideas about the future of satellite telecommunications. GMV ran a spacious stand (2119) to display its complete range of earth-segment products and perform demos.

Last but not least, the smartsuite product range for payload-management, -reconfiguration and -optimization.

The Walter E. Washington Convention Center also received proposals from over 150 countries of the communication-satellite sector. Carlos Espinos (CEO, Hispasat), Gwynne Shotwell (SpaceX), Rodolphe Belmer (CEO, Eutelsat) were some of the speakers who took part in the 80 lectures of the thirty-sixth Satellite week.
