During the unusual circumstances of the world, while many folks are staying within the safety of their homes to avoid the coronavirus, the Satcoms Innovation Group (SIG) has announced a range of online content to keep its members engaged.
The initiative includes a series of discussion-led webinars focusing on key industry topics, including the challenges around Low Earth Orbit (LEO), the impact of 5G, and cloud teleports. Members will also be invited to participate in member spotlight videos where they can present their latest innovations. Members with existing video content are invited to submit it to be uploaded to the group’s YouTube channel which will be expanded over the coming months.
SIG is also launching a new YouTube channel, SIG Educates, which it hopes will become a useful educational resource for children and students. The group is inviting video submissions from anyone across the industry to cover any topic which will inspire and educate the next generation. To submit a video, please send it to.
Helen Weedon, Managing Director, Satcoms Innovation Group, commented that they find themselves in unprecedented times. These initiatives are aimed at supporting their members and the industry through this crisis, as well as giving children who now find themselves at home a useful resource to keep them inspired. Whilst these are necessary now more than ever, she hopes that they can continue to supplement in-person gatherings with this kind of material in the future.
SIG has postponed its planned Goonhilly workshop, which will now take place in 2021.
