Global Satellite Coalition (GSC)

The world’s leading satellite industry associations have established the GSC, an international group of satellite associations which are collaborating to drive industry priorities with one voice, targeting initiatives coordinated and implemented with the combined support of hundreds of member companies based in every world region, and unlocking opportunities for industry growth and ensuring future access to satellite-based solutions for millions of stakeholders who depend on satellite-based solutions. The GSC’s priority is to advocate the role of satellite in achieving complete connectivity from contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Broadband Commission’s connectivity objectives to realising the Network of Networks required for 5G. In addition, it will work on ensuring satellite services are an essential element of national broadband strategies, universal service programmes and disaster preparedness efforts.
