With this event, we aim for a broad representation of organisations working in the field of Optical Satellite Communication. A great opportunity for you to network with your peers and exchange interesting information.

International satellite service providers and integrators will be invited to share their roadmaps and vision of the market. In addition, Dutch OEM organisations, high-tech suppliers and TNO will present their current and future activities. Furthermore, TNO will be pleased to show you physical demonstrations of hardware to reveal the progress that has been made.
