Former diplomatic liaison to U.S. Coalition Forces Jill Kelley became a focus of media coverage when her name was leaked as part of an FBI investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus in 2012. Six years later, she is now spearheading Space-SkyFi — a new public/private venture backed by both aerospace and cellular partners that will create a microsatellite constellation offering “protected” global internet coverage.
Currently the President of Military Diplomacy Strategies, Kelley is an expert on international advocacy and foreign policy, and has been recognized as one of the most globally instrumental Arab-American women. Her work at the highest levels of international leadership played a crucial role in supporting U.S. military operations expanding over the multi-national forces of 60 countries. She served as the first Honorary Ambassador to the International Military Coalition Forces at United States Central Command under U.S. Secretary of Defense Gen. James Mattis.

Space-SkyFi began in late 2017, when Kelley began building a military collaboration to support a Public-Private Partnership (P3) on White House initiated infrastructure projects. By advancing “disruptive” diplomacy, Kelley’s P3 aims to, “fast track traditional government bureaucracy while simultaneously addressing U.S. national security strategy through a counterbalance of government, military and industry partners to gain the most efficient and economic impact.”
She will join Rural Broadband Association Vice President and Assistant General Counsel Jill Canfield and OST Program Manager Asghar Meraj on the DC5G 2018 panel “What is the Ideal Collaborative Industry/Government Strategy to Address 5G Security and Privacy Concerns?” on Tuesday, November 13 at 11 a.m. at the Washington D.C. Capitol Hilton.
Additionally, experts from organizations such as T-Mobile, Samsung, Google, Discovery, Intelsat, Qualcomm, Nokia, Crown Castle, City of Richmond, VA and more will take the stage during the two-day event to participate in holistic conversations and beneficial debates that surround the rollout of 5G networks.
