Hannover Fairs USA

Hannover Fairs USA, Inc. announced the conference program and keynote speakers for its 8th annual ISCe Conference. ISCe 2009, scheduled for June 24 in San Diego, California, will focus on SATCOM solutions for homeland security, disaster recovery and support for warfighters in the pursuit of victory. ISCe 2009 will provide attendees with unprecedented access to key military and civil agency decision makers. With a new Administration in Washington, D.C., spending priorities across the board are being analyzed and reviewed. The results of this scrutiny could have significant ramifications on the DoD's requirements for satellite communications. ISCe 2009 will offer two information-packed programs specifically geared to this changing procurement landscape:

* Military and intelligence applications
* Homeland security, continuity of government and disaster recovery

Through keynote speakers, panel discussions and workshops, attendees at ISCe 2009 will have an opportunity to explore how rising demand for services, short-term stimulus spending and shrinking long-term budgets will reshape the military SATCOM landscape in 2009 and beyond.

Keynote speakers include:

* Lt. Gen Russel Honore, US Army (Ret) - Former Commander Joint Task Force Katrina
* The Honorable Matthew Bettenhausen - Acting Cabinet Secretary, California Emergency Management Agency

ISCe 2009 will also feature two parallel tracks for Military and Civil applications:

* Accomplishing the Mission Within Fiscal Realities
* Hosted Payloads
* Telecom and SATCOM in Nation-Building
* Advanced MilSatCom Systems: 2010 and Beyond!


* SATCOM for Emergency Management
* Integrating SATCOM into Agency Communications
* Network Mobility and Portability
* Broadband in Emergency Response

The Navy SATCOM Users Workshop, organized by SPAWAR and the Satellite Industry Association, will once again close out the three days of ISCe with presentations, including:

* Navy Commercial SATCOM Background/Strategy
* CBSP, the Navy's newest Commercial SATCOM System
* Shipboard Networks

* As well as a keynote address by Dr. Kurt Fiscko, Future SATCOM Chief Engineer, PEO C4I PMW/A 170

"This is a pivotal year for satellite communications with the many changes brought on by the new Obama Administration. We are excited about the ISCe 2009 program and the opportunities it presents to take stock of the significance of this change for DoD SATCOMS needs and requirements. The caliber of speakers and participants that are stepping up to make this an exceptional learning and networking opportunity is outstanding, " said Art Paredes, President and CEO, Hannover Fairs USA, Inc. "In addition to the information-packed sessions on all three days, we're pleased to offer for the first time two training workshops as a pre-day to ISCe. We're delighted to be working with such prestigious organizations as the International Association of Emergency Managers, GVF, the UCLA Extension, and Application Technology Strategy, Inc. in offering these unique opportunities as part of ISCe."
