    Satellite Interference - The Tools and Technology Satellite Interference - The Tools and Technology Document Transcript

    • MASTERCLASS SMi Training Presents… Satellite Interference – The Technology & Tools Tuesday 15th April 2014, Central London HOSTED BY: Overview: 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 concern to maintaining assured and reliable communications links to all. This Masterclass describes 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. Benefits of attending: • You will gain a better understanding of the key causes of interference • You will understand how the external environment can impact operations and cause satellite interference • You will gain a better understanding of the current global initiatives for satellite interference mitigation • You will gain knowledge of the tools and technology available for mitigating satellite interference Who should attend?

In addition, Martin has been an active player in helping reduce interference and as Executive Director of the Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) has evolved a global ETSI/DVB Carrier ID (CID) specification for all SCPC/MCPC transmissions (Video & Data) as well as the original NIT CID issued by WBU-ISOG in 2008. He is committed to seeing Carrier ID being rolled out from 1st January 2015. In addition, his group has been heavily involved with the ITU and major broadcasters in dealing with Intentional Interference and this has led IRG to initiate new standards and processes within the Geolocation industry. IRG supports majors groups such as APSCC, CASBAA, GVF, SMi, SSPi and WTA in getting all interference initiatives advanced. About The Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) The Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) is a leading organization working to reduce satellite frequency interference. It comprises three main working groups, covering Carrier ID, Intentional Interference, and VSAT. The Group’s membership is comprised of satellite operators, users, uplinkers, service providers, equipment vendors and other organizations with a stake in combating radio frequency interference.
