Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) has revealed the recipients of the sixth annual Better Satellite World Awards.
These awards honor established companies along with disruptive innovators who make the world a more prosperous, healthier, better-educated, sustainable and inclusive home for humankind. An international jury selected Avanti Communications’ Bidi Bidi Project, SES’s SATMED Satellite-based Telemedicine Platform and SatSure AG to receive this year’s awards. The recipients will be honored at the Better Satellite World Awards Virtual Celebration on December 7.
The selection of the recipients for the Better Satellite World Awards was made by an international jury consisting of a broad cross-section of industry thought leaders and distinguished professionals. This year, the jury decided to extend an honorable mention to Badan Aksesibilitas Telekomunikasi dan Informasi (BAKTI) for its work providing Internet services in remote areas of Indonesia and Omanos Analytics for that firm’s innovative combination of Earth-Observation-based support of low-infrastructure and/or politically complex regions’ need for accountability for social and environmental damage.
The Better Satellite World Awards Virtual Celebration is produced by SSPI and the organization’s UK and Isle of Man Chapters.
“These are three transformative uses of satellite in different corners of the globe that are making a better world,” said SSPI Director of Development and Innovation, Louis Zacharilla. “What ties them together is that each has been giving the nations and communities where they are providing satellite service the power to become self-reliant financially, in terms of learning and also for the purpose of health. SSPI members salute these efforts.”
