CGI in collaboration with Amazon Web Services are holding an event on ‘Maximizing software defined satellites using cloud’ on Monday 18 March 2024 at the Marriot Marquis, Washington, DC.

This is an opportunity to learn about the latest developments in Cloud and how it enables exploitation of AI/ML for SatCom.

Satellite operators looking to introduce new software defined satellites and flexible service models are increasingly turning to the Cloud for implementing new ground segment functions for LEO, MEO and GEO SatComs. This event will explore examples and lessons learnt in this transformation, as well as showcase how new services can be rapidly spun-up to leverage AI and automation in operations.
