MilCIS 2023

Revolutionising government operations worldwide

Visit the SES Exhibition Booth, F32, Expo Hall, to discover how you can boost resilience and meet the demand for low-latency, high-throughput connectivity with O3b mPOWER, the industry’s first proven non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) system—capable of delivering multi-gigabit links virtually anywhere on Earth.

With O3b mPOWER, you can have:

  • High performance for cloud optimised applications, enhancing government operations, large-scale networking, and the availability of big-data analytics to remote deployments.
  • Flexible return capacity enabling scale for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) missions, supporting dynamic tracking and control of forward and return links with throughput capacity.
  • Support for rapid response for flexible mobile and emergency operations to meet rapidly changing requirements and offer high-capacity network services (including cloud optimised services).


Australian Defence mPOWERED: A Comprehensive Overview of SES’s O3b mPOWER MEO Satellite Constellation
Date: Thursday, 16 November, 1:30 PM AEDT 
Venue: The Royal Theatre at the National Convention Centre

Presentation abstract

Australia’s 2023 Defence Strategic Review highlighted the need for Defence’s space capabilities to be optimised for assured communications. It identified commercial space capabilities as a critical adjunct to ADF force structure, complementing and augmenting extant government-owned systems. It also called for a new approach to capability acquisition, with an emphasis on speed, near-term readiness, and ‘off-the-shelf’ solutions. In this presentation, we will examine the capabilities of O3b mPOWER, SES’s second-generation medium earth orbit (MEO) satellite system. This system offers high-capacity, low-latency connectivity; with a focus on its strategic alignment to key Defence priorities. The presentation will also offer an up-to-date overview of the operational status of O3b mPOWER, along with a concise technical introduction to its space, ground and control segments of the system. We will explore the advantages of MEO, focusing on its resilience, throughput, and latency benefits. Most importantly, the presentation will outline key Defence applications for O3b mPOWER, ranging from enterprise connectivity to remote sites and ship-borne quality of life services to supporting secure Command and Control (C2), Integrated Air and Missile Defence (IAMD), and counter-hypersonic interdiction.
