On Tuesday 11 September, IRG and GVF are organising a SES-sponsored ‘Interference Prevention Summit’ in Hall 1 Balcony Suite: BM10/BM11. IRG will also be hosting a series of workshops to discuss interference.

“We have made a number of great advancements in the fight against interference, however more work still needs to be done and we need to involve the entire industry,” commented David Hartshorn, secretary general, GVF. “These meetings will help us determine the next steps and communicate those to the industry.”

“We are keen to work together with GVF to further the fight against the costly problem of satellite interference,” commented Martin Coleman, executive director, the Satellite Interference Reduction Group. “We believe the workshops will give people an additional channel to come and talk to us and find out more about how they can prevent interference.”
