The Satellite Industry Association (SIA) is a Washington D.C. based trade association representing the leading global satellite operators, service providers, manufacturers, launch services providers, and ground equipment suppliers.
Since 1995, SIA has been the unified voice of the satellite industry on policy, regulatory, and legislative issues affecting the commercial satellite industry. The association actively promotes the benefits and uses of commercial satellite technology and its role in national security, homeland security, disaster relief and recovery, and the global information infrastructure and economy.
As the commercial satellite industry’s lead advocate, the SIA continually monitors the international and domestic regulatory landscape and works to advance satellite interests both at home and abroad. SIA member companies are actively involved in reviewing and commenting on spectrum, regulatory, telecom, international trade, export controls, government procurement, national defense, homeland security and industry trends among other key issues.
