SMi—The Technology + The Tools To Combat Interference (Event—Training)

[SatNews] Communication engineers face a number of challenges today, including maximizing the amount of information that can be communicated over the limited resources available.

As the number of satellites increase, the spacing, or separation between satellites decreases, and the increase in demand for more and more content to be delivered from the same or multiple satellites, interference between the satellite signals has become an issue. Satellite services are widely used by the commercial sector and the military. Reliance on detecting minute signals in a fog of radio frequency “noise” interference, either unintended or deliberate, is a challenge for all trying to maintain assured and reliable communications links.

SMi's masterclass, which will be conducted on April 15th, 2014, in London will discuss the technology and tools used to mitigate interference through commercial sector initiatives and explore how interference is managed and reduced. Presenters from the IRG, SAT Corporation and Newtec will look at the challenges posed by this important issue, identify current and potential solutions, describe what is being done within the satellite community to ensure that robust satellite communications can be sustained as services rapidly expand.

Key benefits to this masterclass are:

  • Gain a better understanding of the key causes of interference
  • Understand how the external environment can impact operations and cause satellite interference
  • Gain knowledge of the tools and technology available for mitigating satellite interference
  • Gain a better understanding of the current global initiatives for satellite interference mitigation

The Masterclass Speakers include...

  • Martin Coleman , Executive Director, Satellite Interference Reduction Group
  • Robert Rideout , Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Sat Corporation
  • Thomas Van Den Driessche, COO,  Newtec
