Satellite Industry Veteran Will Explore the Need for High Throughput Terminals at SATELLITE 2018 Conference Keynote

Rockville, MD – Monday, March 5, 2018 – The organizers of SATELLITE 2018 are pleased to announce today that John Finney, founder of Isotropic Systems, will deliver the Lunch Keynote address for all conference attendees on Monday, March 12, 2018 at 12:15pm. Finney will appear on stage to share his vision of the satellite industry’s future by leveraging the massive high-throughput satellites coming on line by implementing the company’s transformational, next-generation terminal technology.

Isotropic Systems has developed a low-cost, fully electronic tracking terminal for mass-market enterprise and consumer segments. Isotropic Systems’ approach is unique among terminal providers in that it approaches the latent demand for broadband as a commercial business challenge. Finney will explain why he believes that technology in and of itself is not necessarily a game-changer until it sufficiently disrupts the industry to break into untapped mass-markets.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have John Finney, the founder of Isotropic Systems and former CCO of O3b, as our special guest keynote speaker on Monday,” said Jeffrey Hill, Chairman of SATELLITE 2018. “John’s long-standing passion for innovation is clearly embedded in Isotropic Systems’ mission. I’m looking forward to a discussion that will provide attendees with an exclusive look at the changes needed on the ground for HTS to take its place as a core element of tomorrow’s global broadband technology infrastructure.”

Finney is one of 300+ speakers that highlight the most prolific SATELLITE program of all time, which will also feature specialized Forums broken out by several topics and themes, including 5G, cyber-security & interference, engineering, finance, government & military, ground segment, mobility, and innovation.  The complete program is available at

SATELLITE 2018 will be held March 12-15, 2018 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center located at 801 Mt Vernon Pl NW, Washington, D.C. 20001. For more information and to register, please visit
