SATELLITES TO THE RESCUE (SSPI-MA), Apr 8, 2021, virtual, 5:30-7:00 pm ET

SSPI’s Mid-Atlantic chapter will hold a webinar on April 8, 2021 from 5:30-7:00 pm ET.

The topic is Satellites to the Rescue.

More information is on the event’s website, which says:

Today the World is connected through a myriad of networks, with our expectations is that communications will continue to be ready and available.  During devastating national disasters such as hurricanes and tornadoes, there is a team of satellite owner operators and related industry partners that come together to keep communications “on”, a true life-line to support the relief and reparation activities.  Thanks to orchestrated efforts of international organizations, Government agencies and brokers, assistance can be provided to remote and under-served locations.

SSPI-MA is bringing together a panel that covers the activities and challenges, deploying “Satellites to the Rescue”. Paul Margie, representing Télécoms Sans Frontières, whose mission is to build rapid-response communications centers for local and international responders; Britt Lewis, from Inmarsat Government, will talk about FirstNet, the first high-speed, nationwide wireless broadband network dedicated to public safety, and Gerad Godfrey, will address the challenges of remote end-users.
