International Telecommunication Union (ITU) has announced its International Satellite Communication Symposium scheduled to hold June 13-14 in Geneva.
ITU said in a statement today that the symposium will explore measures to prevent and combat interference in satellite communications.
ITU explains that the event is aimed at providing an overview of ongoing progress on regulations, technologies and measures to prevent and combat interference in satellite communications and to share experiences on the latest developments and innovations.
International experts will examine the current situation and the latest technologies to detect, identify, locate and mitigate harmful interference, which may severely impact satellite services, including safety operations.
ITU also says that discussions will also focus on International space law, protecting space science services, radio astronomy, global navigation satellite services, and cyber-security as well as ensuring interference-free satellite broadcast services.
A special session will be dedicated to innovation in satellite systems, focusing on technical characteristics and benefits arising from new generations of non-geostationary satellite orbit (non-GSO) constellations and High Throughput Satellites (HTS), ITU says.
