2016 Joint Conference on Satellite Communications Systems

The 34th AIAA International Communications Satellite
Systems Conference (ICSSC)
and the 22nd Ka and Broadband
Communications Conference
, the two most influential
technical conferences on communications satellite systems, will be held jointly in Cleveland, Ohio, October 18 to 20, 2016.

Cleveland-Top-Banner(460x165)NASA_Glenn_Logo(130x39)2016 is the year in which the AIAA ICSSC will celebrate its 50th anniversary and this is also the second time that the Ka Band Conference, started in order to publicize NASA’s ACTS satellite, is held in Cleveland in collaboration with the NASA Glenn Research Center.

The Joint Conference infosite is located here and contains information on the 34th AIAA ICSSC Conference and the 22nd Ka and Broadband Communications Conference.

The theme of the Joint Conference “Communications Satellite Systems: A Look Back at the First 50 Years and Thoughts on the Next 50” emphasises the vital role of satellites in providing information, entertainment, weather forecasting, travel directions and communications, for civilian use, while for governments, satellites provide key functions for civil and military needs, security and public safety, search and rescue operations, tracking of moving vehicles on land and at sea, environmental sensing and monitoring, and disaster assistance. Also, satellites are the only means of achieving a better understanding of our universe and in particular of our galaxy. This search calls for unprecedented communication capacity, now provided by Ka-band satellites and in the future by Q-/V- and possibly W-band satellites.

The Opening Session will present the significant achievements of the satellite industry during the last fifty years and will look at the future, starting with the third generation Ka-band Systems, the proposed LEO global broadband access systems, and NASA’s plans for interplanetary communications.

Events of the Joint Conference to support the above goals are:

  • The Colloquium (to be held on Monday, October 17 immediately preceding the Joint Conference).
  • The BroadSky Workshop.
  • A Plenary Opening Session with leaders from the satellite field.
