20 Jul 22. Access Intelligence Announces Partnership with GSMA on New One-Day Summit at MWC Las Vegas.
Summit to take place at MWC Las Vegas in September.
Access Intelligence, LLC, a media and event company based out of Rockville, MD, and producer of the SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition and Via Satellite magazine, will partner with GSMA to hold a one-day conference program during MWC Las Vegas this fall. This one-day thought leadership summit will bring together the satellite and terrestrial telco worlds for important conversations focusing on building hybrid networks and expanding global connectivity.
“The GSMA is delighted to be partnering with Access Intelligence, producers of the SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition and Via Satellite magazine, to bring a new, one-day thought leadership summit to MWC Las Vegas,” said GSMA Ltd.’s CEO, John Hoffman. “The Summit, SATELLITE at MWC Las Vegas, will focus on key trends in the increasingly interconnected global satellite and telecommunications industries.”
The program will cover topics that are imperative to the successful collaboration between the satellite and telco industries. Experts in each industry will take the stage to lead discussions on how modern satellites can take a much more central role in a hybrid network, providing backhaul services and beyond, and even connecting directly to consumer devices. Attendees will gain access to thought leaders and innovators who are building the satellite systems needed to complete future global connectivity services and expand the reach of next-gen 5G mobile services and Smart applications for commercial, enterprise, and government end-users.
“For more than 40 years, SATELLITE and Via Satellite have been at the forefront of business trends and insights in the satellite market,” said Jennifer Schwartz, Divisional President at Access Intelligence. “We’re thrilled to partner with GSMA to help foster the conversation between the satellite and telecommunications industries with the intent to improve and expand global connectivity.”
The audience will include mobile network operators, network equipment providers, device manufacturers, satellite operators and satellite equipment manufacturers. Registration includes access to the full SATELLITE @ MWC Las Vegas program plus the MWC Las Vegas exhibit hall.
SATELLITE @ MWC Las Vegas will be held Thursday, September 29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center located at 3150 Paradise Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89109. For more information and to register, visit www.satshow.com/mwc-lv.

18 Jul 22. McKinsey & Company (Chalet C218) has released their first two reports for the Farnborough International Airshow 2022:
Decarbonizing the aviation sector: Making net zero aviation possible
Although the aviation sector is a significant source of emissions, it could potentially achieve net zero by 2050.
- McKinsey developed a prudent and an optimistic renewable-energy scenario for achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.
- The optimistic scenario assumes faster development and adoption of renewable electricity based on technological breakthroughs that drive down cost. As a result, sustainable aviation fuels (SAFs) produced from electricity (power-to-liquids or “PtL”), as well as hydrogen and battery-electric aircraft enter the market earlier and at a larger scale.
- In the prudent scenario, SAF made from biomass remain the leading energy source.
- Achieving carbon-neutral growth through 2030 would require $40 bn to $50 bn in funding annually, and about $175 bn would be required through 2050. About 80–90 percent of these investments would go to the production of SAFs.
- The remainder would go to the development of battery-electric, hybrid-electric and hydrogen aircraft, as well as the renewable electricity and green-hydrogen production plants required to power them.
Debugging the software talent gap in aerospace and defense
This report highlights the challenge of transitioning from a hardware-centric industry to a software one. At a time when there are 50,000 unfilled positions globally and technology talent outflows are twice as large as inflows, the report identifies four principles to follow:
- Rethink the employee value proposition: A&D resignations are up to six percent above average. Increasingly younger talent highly value purpose, flexibility, collaboration and inclusion; technology talent embraces these expectations.
- Take a tailored approach: More agile ways of working that break the traditional hierarchy can feel foreign for legacy hardware players whose culture is mission driven. Also, technology talent is significantly more expensive, yet A&D pays entry-level software engineers two times less than top technology companies.
- Make diversity part of the solution: In North America, diverse profiles are underrepresented at all levels of aerospace and defense. Yet, the role of chief diversity officer is only present at various organizational levels in 40 percent of the U.S. Fortune 400 Advanced Industries companies, including those in A&D.
- Ensure retention by building a healthier organization: 64% of global companies have a better organizational health score than the median A&D one. Two-thirds of the behaviors that drive organizational health for A&D companies fall below the benchmark, notably role clarity and employee involvement.
