Space technologies have become critical for commercial development in industrial applications, government service and mobile communications. The SES Innovation and Technology Day – Collaborating for a Connected World – hosted by the Satellite Applications Catapult and supported by the UK Space SME Forum, aims to uncover the next generation of space applications. The event therefore brings together established leaders in the European space ecosystem, SMEs, startups and innovators to explore new opportunities for partnership and open innovation.
SES is the world-leading satellite operator and the first to deliver a differentiated and scale-able GEO-MEO offering worldwide, with more than 50 satellites in Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO) and 12 in Medium Earth Orbit (MEO). SES focuses on value-added, end-to-end solutions in two key business units: SES Video and SES Networks. At SES, we connect and enable broadcast, telecom, corporate and government customers, and enrich the lives of billions of people worldwide.
