ITU Satellite Symposium 2018 is the continuation of this series previously held in Geneva, Americas and Asian regions. This time, it will be dedicated to Satellite Communications technologies, markets and trends, from fundamentals of satellite communications to emerging technologies and policies. The symposium will include a hands-on outdoor workshop where participants will have the opportunity to gain experience on the use of equipment and to perform measurements. The third day will be fully dedicated to Small Satellites, when attendees will benefit from discussions among well recognized speakers from the industry, space agencies and ITU, addressing the coexistence of small satellites with other systems in line with current technology and regulations. Emerging technologies and innovative applications will also be presented together with new solutions on space monitoring.
