Inmarsat and Cobham have confirmed details of Inmarsat’s Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Beyond Visible Line Of Sight (BVLOS) Conference. This free one-day event will take place on 30 May 2019 at Inmarsat’s London headquarters, and will explore the benefits of satellite-enabled UAVs for commercial end-users.

Driving innovation in the UAV sector 
In 2018, Inmarsat and Cobham released a global BVLOS satcom solution for UAVs, weighing just 1.45 Kg and offering streaming capability. The conference will provide a unique opportunity to hear how six UAV companies are using the service with a range of industry-leading customers from sectors including oil & gas and disaster relief, as part of Inmarsat’s UAV Pop-up Lab trial programme.

The event will include keynote speakers from across the industry and breakout sessions where UAV companies will present about how they used Inmarsat satellite communications to improve their UAV mission capability and the trial outcomes. Breakout sessions will also include panel discussions with customers of UAV services such as energy companies, NGO’s and disaster relief organisations, to facilitate debate with leading experts on key UAV industry topics.

  • See how small tactical UAV companies are using satcom to enable BVLOS flights today
