The Significance of Satellite Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) in Sustainability Efforts
Speaker: Amber Ledgerwood
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm / 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm CET
In recent decades, sustainability has emerged as a key driver for many multinational firms and institutions. With increased awareness amongst both private and public players on threats to Earth and Space and the critical role played by space products, the space industry is currently experiencing a fundamental shift that makes it necessary to assess the environmental footprint of this sector more accurately. The Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a quantitative tool to evaluate the environmental impacts and resources used over a product's life cycle. On a broad scale, this encompasses the acquisition of raw materials, phases of manufacturing and usage, and end-of-life management. In this session, speakers will share findings from recent LCA and explain how these findings can be integrated into business decisions and identification of levers for environmental footprint reduction. Speakers will also address the challenges to undergoing an LCA and how to overcome these challenges as a space ecosystem.

SATELLITE 2024 Opening General Session - How Industry Leaders are Investing in Growth: Innovative Satellite Technologies for New Customers
Speaker: Adel Al-Saleh
Time: 9:00 am - 10:00 am / 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm CET
Room: Ballroom A/B
Open to all attendees! A global surge in demand for satellite services across multiple markets has created a growth opportunity for satellite operators and manufacturers. Now locked in a race to build the network infrastructure needed to meet this demand, satellite industry executives find themselves in a position where spending money to make money is the only way to keep pace with industry leaders. Are the days of defensive cost-cutting and playing it safe over? During our marquee Tuesday Opening General session, Via Satellite Editorial Director Mark Holmes asks our industry's most influential executives how they are scaling up and going on the offense with strategic investments in technology and new customer acquisition.
Strategic Synergies in the Multi-layered Network Transport Era
Speaker: Todd Gossett
Time: 11:00 am - 12:00 pm / 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm CET
Room: 145 A/B
The satellite industry is entering a critical phase marked by rapid technological advancements and changing market dynamics. With the convergence of multi-layered satellite and terrestrial network systems that integrate air, sea, and land networks with satellite-enabled communications, the landscape is becoming increasingly complex. No longer can satellite companies afford to operate in silos; they must forge strategic alliances and partnerships for mutual benefit and long-term sustainability. In this session, we explore new forms of collaboration that are becoming essential to industry players’ long-term success. We examine various case studies to demonstrate how partnerships offer advantages such as shared resources, risk mitigation, and accelerated innovation. Learn how collaboration is not just advantageous for satellite companies—it's a critical component for survival and growth. Those who successfully adapt to this paradigm shift will likely emerge as industry leaders in this transformative era.

Designing the Digital Ground Segment of the Future
Speaker: Valvanera Moreno
Time: 10:45 am - 11:45 am / 3:00 pm - 3:30 pm CET
The next generation of satellites will be defined by software, to serve a market in which IP content is the dominant traffic for satcom, broadcast and earth observation. Total traffic volume is exploding, waveforms multiplying and thousands of LEO and MEO spacecraft are demanding sophisticated gateways able to handle thousands of connections without interference. Digital transformation in the sky is creating immense pressure for a similar transformation on the ground at a time when hardware-based and analog systems fill every teleport. In this session, engineering and operations executives assess the progress being made in the digital transformation of the ground segment and what it will take to accelerate change this vital link in the satellite communications chain.
