Seoul, Korea, 27 June 2016: The Asia Pacific Satellite Communications Council (“APSCC”) today announced the launch of a Youth Development Satellite
Workshop to be held concurrently with the annual APSCC conference.
The Workshop has been designed to provide a platform for the
brightest up-and-coming engineering students to connect with leading satellite
and space industry experts and learn more about the opportunities in the
sector. The inaugural workshop will be held in collaboration with the APSCC
2016 Satellite Conference and Exhibition at Le Meridien Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia,
4-6 October 2016.
“The space and satellite sectors are going through an exciting
period of innovation and change, with the increasing involvement of venture
capital and ‘Silicon Valley’ financing,” said Paul Brown-Kenyon, President of
APSCC and CEO of MEASAT. “To be able to drive this innovation
and harness the opportunities it provides, it is critical for the sector to attract
the brightest of our students.”
For its inaugural year, APSCC identified industry experts to
present different satcom specialties ranging from ‘Fundamentals Systems &
Applications of Satellite Communications’ to ‘Regulation’ to ‘Market Overview’
at the Workshop. Featured presenters include:
Michael Davis, Co-Director, ISU Southern Hemisphere Space
Ali Ebadi, Senior Vice President of Space Systems
Yvon Henri, Chief of Space Services Dept., ITU Radiocommunication
Jose Del Rosario, Research Director, NSR
David Ball, Industry Consultant
Students from Malaysia’s leading technology universities have been
invited to attend the workshop scheduled for 6 October. This year’s workshop
will be supplemented by a facility visit to the MEASAT Teleport and Broadcast
Centre to provide the students with a deeper understanding of the industry
through field experience.
