Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (PRWEB UK) 18 April 2014
Leading military and industry experts to meet in Rio de Janeiro in August at MilSatCom Latin America Conference
While the rest of the world is facing cuts in military spending, in South America there was a growth of 3.8% in the last few years. The future launch of the Geostationary and Defense and Strategic Communications Satellite (SGDC) in 2017, which marks Brazil’s entry into the high-throughput satellite market highlights the fact that Latin America is the next biggest region in SatCom.
Following the success of its MilSatCom Portfolio, including the world-renowned Global MilSatCom, the SMi Group is proud to present the launch of MilSatCom Latin America Conference, taking place on the 27th-28th of August 2014, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
As well as featuring much discussion on Brazil, the hub for MilSatCom, the event agenda includes presentations focusing on the different Latin American countries and their proprietary satellites such as Argentina and El Salvador. Event’s attendees will also be exploring Latin America’s growing partnerships with other countries such as China.
