In this time of celebration of the 25th anniversary of GVF, I want to highlight first and foremost the unique approach of GVF for raising awareness of the various benefits brought by satellite systems in our daily lives.
Where other organizations essentially focuses on disseminating information about satellite applications, GVF aims at spreading knowledge, building capacity and facilitating access to satellite-based solutions, notably through its well-known set of training and certification programs that have become over the years references across the entire satellite ecosystem.
This approach benefits both the satellite industry and the global telecommunications sector by ensuring that the best satellite offerings can be chosen and implemented by more and more entities worldwide, thus providing an essential contribution to build truly universal connectivity.
Happy 25th anniversary to GVF!
