Cobham hosts ‘Leadership in Person’ keynote speakers at SMM

Daily maritime communication focused presentations from CIRM, Inmarsat and Intelsat to provide insight into maritime satellite and radio communication

Copenhagen, Denmark - Cobham SATCOM will host a series of 'Leadership in Person' key note presentations from visionary industry leaders on its stand during SMM 2016 (Hall B6 stand 407). The Comité International Radio-Maritime (CIRM), and satellite network operators Inmarsat and Intelsat will each present on a variety of topics that effect the maritime industry, providing insight on how harnessing the power of modern communication technology and services can support the industry to operate safer, smarter and more effectively.


Cobham SATCOM has chosen two major players to focus on maritime satellite communication. Inmarsat and Intelsat will share insight into the future of the industry and the drivers behind the business - covering topics such as HTS, Fleet Xpress and Intelsat EpicNG. CIRM Keynote presentations will focus on the ongoing development and future of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS), the established emergency communication regulation that Cobham has played a significant part in shaping since its introduction in 1999.


Cobham welcomes SMM attendees to join its Leadership in Person key note presentations, which will take place daily from Tuesday 6th September until Thursday 8th September. Each presentation is expected to last approximately 15 minutes and includes the opportunity to discuss the issues with the speakers and Cobham SATCOM staff afterwards.
