IRG Becomes Satcoms Innovation Group

Isle of Man, 9th October 2018 – The Satellite Interference Reduction Group today announced it is expanding its reach to encompass all types of innovation within the satellite communications industry. As part of that expansion, it has changed its name to Satcoms Innovation Group (SIG). SIG aims to promote innovation in the satellite communications industry to improve operational efficiency, reduce the risk of service impacting events, and improve quality of service. A significant part of that remit remains innovation to minimize satellite interference, both by prevention and quicker resolution. It also now covers other areas where innovation can improve performance and enable the industry to become more competitive. SIG will continue the focus on bringing the industry together at an engineering level. This makes it uniquely positioned to provide a platform for those engineers to discuss current challenges. This approach has resulted in a number of innovative solutions being brought to market that have had a massive impact on reducing satellite interference. Martin Coleman, Executive Director, Satcoms Innovation Group, commented: “Satellite interference remains an important challenge for the industry. At the same time, much of the innovation and improved processes we have been working towards also enable overall efficiency savings, which may also lead to cost savings for operators. Widening our remit is therefore a natural progression to enable us to support more than just interference resolution.” As well as being a unique collaborative forum, with in-person events happening across the globe on an annual basis, SIG will continue to lobby other industry groups and regulators where that is beneficial to the industry. It will also support and promote innovative projects to provide better tools and processes with the aim of improving efficiency in satellite operations. Current hot topics include Artificial Intelligence (AI), automation, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), amongst others. Satcoms Innovation Group was officially launched today during Satellite Technology Asia in Singapore. The event is being co-hosted with Intelligence-Sec. For more information about joining SIG, please visit https://satig.space/membership/ To highlight a topic that should be addressed or share your recent innovations, please contact press@satig.space. About Satcoms Innovation Group Satcoms Innovation Group (SIG) is a not-for-profit satellite industry association promoting innovation in the satellite communication industry to improve operational efficiency, reduce the risk of service impacting events, and improve quality of service. It provides a forum for engineers to discuss challenges and find resolutions, as well as being a lobbying power.

Satellite Interference Reduction Group and Intelligence-Sec To Host Satellite Technology Asia 2018

Isle of Man and Buckinghamshire, UK, 4th September 2018 – The Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) and Intelligence-Sec have partnered to host a joint event called Satellite Technology Asia 2018, between 9th – 10th October in Singapore. The event will explore the local challenges facing the Asia Satellite Market, as well as those of a global nature. Speakers from high-profile industry organisations will discuss a range of topics across the two-day event, which will be an excellent opportunity to network with industry contacts. The event will explore the use of satellites by Asian nations, the importance of satellites for the military and governments of Asia, as well as the increased potential for disruption from space debris & interference. Attendees will hear sessions on the future of Space Situational Awareness (SSA) and Space Traffic Management (STM) in light of the growing problem of congestion in space and spectrum. Martin Coleman, Executive Director, IRG, commented: “This will be IRG’s first APAC-based event of the year so we are really looking forward to returning to the region to hear from the local industry. This event is going to be extra special for us as we are partnering with Intelligence-Sec and will be bringing together both of our respective audiences. I’m excited to lead a session during the event which will explore specific satellite interference issues in Asia-Pacific, a number of which are unique to the region, such as the importance of space weather forecasting.” Other areas that will be analysed during the two-day conference and exhibition is the future of satellites, smallsats, the developments of 5G and HTS satellites and what is coming next. Another topic of discussion will be the potential for Artificial Intelligence to improve efficiencies and diminish errors within the satcoms world, as well as the impact of LEO constellations on the wider industry. Martyn Hill, Director, Intelligence-Sec, added: “Satellite usage is on the up, and more and more countries are launching satellites for imagery, weather, surveillance and broadcasting purposes. But with this increase in satellites comes an added potential for congestion, interference and service disruption. Satellite Technology Asia will act as a platform for local operators, manufacturers and users to give us an overview of their current capabilities and future plans. It’s shaping up to be a really great event which we are very happy to be co-hosting with IRG.” IRG members can register for Satellite Technology Asia for free using the registration form on the website.
