How Satellites Make a Better World Details Industry’s “Unknown Achievements”
OTTAWA, June 16, 2015 – C-COM Satellite Systems Inc. (TSXV: CMI; US – OTC: CYSNF), a leading global provider of mobile auto-deploying satellite antenna systems, announced today its endorsement of the “Better Satellite World” campaign of the Society of Satellite Professionals International (SSPI). The project, launched in 2015 by the Society of Satellite Professionals International (SSPI), seeks to change the way the market understands the importance and relevance of the global satellite market.
The campaign catalogues the enormous contributions of satellite technology to human welfare, the economy, peace and security, and is part of a long-term effort to raise awareness of satellite as one of the world’s essential technologies. The modern world literally runs on satellite, from TV and computer networks to weather forecasting, public safety, transportation, global security, retail payments and the world’s financial markets. But few people know this, and that lack of awareness creates headwinds for the industry while limiting the value that satellite can deliver to governments, business and society as a whole.
“We appreciate C-COM’s support for the industry’s ‘Better Satellite World’ campaign” said Lou Zacharilla, Director of Development for SSPI. “As a small, entrepreneurial company whose projects have received worldwide attention, C-COM represents the innovators that populate the satellite universe”, Zacharilla continued.
“C-COM is proud to endorse this all important campaign started by our friends and colleagues at SSPI”, said Dr. Leslie Klein, President and CEO of C-COM. “The use of satellite in so many different verticals has been proven to save time, money and most importantly, lives. It’s time for those of us in the satellite business to do what we can to educate policymakers, commercial innovators, and the young people who are fascinated with this growing technology”, Klein continued.
