Satellite systems are recognized as a key component for the introduction of wideband multimedia services for the end users: TV broadcasting is evolving with the introduction of interactive services, Internet by satellite is developing fast.
The theme of the Conference "Satellite Communications for the New Millennium" will give special emphasis to new services and applications as well as covering the satellite systems topics with which the conference is traditionally associated. Focus will be on Internet and broadband communications, digital broadcasting, personal communications, navigation and positioning services.
In addition to research and development initiatives pushing wireless technology towards new frontiers, essential issues that have to be addressed for further expansion of satellite systems in the New Millennium include innovative and tailor-made service offers, economic issues around low equipment fees and tariffs, international cooperation, regulatory issues and access to frequencies. Seamless integration and operations, inter-networking with terrestrial infrastructures, open system standardisation, are also keys to success.
The Conference will provide a forum to rewiew and demonstrate advances in communication techniques, ground and on-board technology, spacecraft and launch vehicles, systems architecture, applications and services in the field of multimedia satellite communications for fixed, broadcast, mobile, personal applications. This forum is open to satellite systems developers, spacecraft and launch vehicles specialists, component and equipment designers, communications techniques experts and investigators, researchers and university lecturers, agencies representatives, network planners, satellite operators, telecom service providers, etc.
The 19th ICSSC conference will be held in Toulouse (France), from 17 to 20 April, 2001. It is organized by CNES (Centre National d’Etudes Spatiales), ESA (European Space Agency), AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics), SUPAERO (Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l’Aéronautique et de l’Espace) in cooperation with the major European industrialists.
