Connectivity is the cornerstone of today's global economy and it will certainly be the case for the Future Space Economy, with even more complex, data-centric applications. We spent decades building the global satellite connectivity infrastructure around Earth, is it possible to replicate Earth's satellite connectivity infrastructure on the Moon, or on other planets?

This webcast explores what deep space satellite networks will look like, and how they will be built to perform in extraordinary environments. We'll also discuss the history of deep-space exploration and research satellites and what we've learned from those missions.

Following the rebroadcast of this exclusive SATELLITE 2024 session, join our panelists from QinetiQ, Space Tango, and Kepler Communications for LIVE Q&A.
