COMSAT President To Deliver Keynote Address At Satellite Communications Users Conference

Bruce L. Crockett, president and CEO and a director of COMSAT Corp., will discuss the issues surrounding privatization at the 16th annual Satellite Communications Users Conference (SCUC), to be held September 19-21 at the Sheraton Washington Hotel in Washington, D.C.

SCUC attracts professionals from all facets of the industry, including satellite operators and common carriers, telecommunications equipment manufacturers, data communications managers and corporate and ranking government officials.

This year's opening session features a roundtable discussion entitled, "The Information Super Highway: Open Road or Dead End Street?" Leaders from all areas of the satellite communications industry, including decision-makers from the White House, Capitol Hill, the State Department and the Federal Communications Commission, will lead discussions in different sessions.

Sessions fall into one of the following four categories: User Track, Issues Track, International Track and Engineering Track.

A day before SCUC 94's official kickoff, participants have the option to attend special educational workshops called "Fast Tracks." During these workshops, participants learn how to implement digital compression, a new technology, and what they should consider when buying or leasing a very small aperture terminal system (VSAT).

Attendees of SCUC '94 will meet communications professionals from countries in Asia, Latin America, Europe and the U.S., debating issues concerning direct broadcast satellites, mobile satellite services, launch systems and VSATs. Panelists will explain, from an end-user perspective, how satellite systems are helping define the European community.
