Innovations in Next Generation Satellite Communications – Australia’s Digital Future: Panel Series


Digital technologies are transforming the way we live, work and govern. The National Committee for Information and Communications Science (NCICS), in conjunction with the Australian Academy of Technology and Engineering (ATSE), is hosting a series of webinars focusing on Australia’s digital future. This series of virtual roundtables will highlight successful models of university-industry interactions in Australia by bringing together key leaders who are at the forefront of securing our digital future.

Advanced wireless communications remain a critical enabler for our mobile platforms and systems to maintain and maintain high capacity data communication in demanding situations. Wireless communications require access to suitable radio frequency spectrum, which creates challenges for critical platforms when such spectrum becomes crowded, contested or denied. Future mission-critical platforms will require compact wireless communication terminals capable of systematically exploiting an increasing range of frequencies in the electromagnetic spectrum. This poses a significant challenge of integrating optical and radio frequency systems to meet the resilient communication platforms needed in the future.

The first webinar on Innovations in next-generation satellite communications will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. AEST on Thursday, June 23, 2022.
