GVF is and has been playing a vital rule in Unifying Satellite Industry Ecosystem, bringing together Satellite Operators, manufacturers, Technology and service providers. GVF since its establishment back in 1997, has made remarkable achievement as a platform to promote Satellite communications around the globe. I have been a member of GVF board since 2014 and I am delighted to contribute to the advancement of such a global organization with roust presence.
The recent evolution and structure of the working groups enabled GVF to address the Spectrum, Technology, Training, ground systems standardization especially antenna type approvals. Furthermore, the marketing working group (#GenSpace) made phenomenal change in increasing awareness of satellite industry innovation and to correct misperceptions about satellite connectivity.
