SES BROADBAND SERVICES ET L’ESA SOUTIENNENT L’INNOVATION DANS LE DOMAINE DE LA COMMUNICATION SATELLITAIRE À LARGE BANDE

SES (Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) a annoncé la signature d’un accord avec l’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA) visant à soutenir l’innovation dans le domaine de la communication à large bande par satellite. En vertu de cet accord, SES Broadband Services, filiale détenue à 100 % par SES et spécialisée dans les services satcom à large bande, proposera un large éventail de prestations à des conditions préférentielles aux acteurs industriels participant aux projets d’Applications ARTES menés sous l’égide de l’ESA.

L’initiative ARTES (Advanced Research in Telecommunications Systems), dirigée par l’ESA, vise à renforcer la compétitivité de l’industrie européenne en promouvant l’utilisation des satellites dans le cadre d’applications telles que la télédiffusion, les communications multimédias et mobiles, le relais de données, la recherche et sauvetage, et les services à l’aviation.

Au travers de cette initiative, SES Broadband Services encourage les acteurs industriels à développer de nouveaux services et applications à large bande par satellite. Les entreprises participant au Programme d’Application ARTES (ARTES 3-4 et ARTES 20) peuvent ainsi bénéficier des prestations de SES Broadband à des tarifs préférentiels sur les faisceaux paneuropéens et moyen-orientaux du satellite ASTRA-3B positionné sur 23,5 degrés Est, et le faisceau couvrant l’Afrique orientale et subsaharienne du satellite ASTRA-4A positionné sur 5 degrés Est.

« Nous misons constamment sur l’innovation produits pour conquérir et conserver le leadership sur le marché. Nous sommes ravis d’étoffer notre coopération avec l’Agence spatiale européenne pour soutenir l’innovation de l’industrie satellitaire européenne », a déclaré à cette occasion Patrick Biewer, Directeur général de SES Broadband Services. « Nous considérons cette initiative comme un catalyseur d’idées neuves, qui facilitera la conception et la commercialisation de nouvelles applications de communication à large bande par satellite en Europe, au Moyen-Orient et en Afrique subsaharienne ».

« L’ESA se félicite de l’initiative conjointe avec SES Broadband Services, en soutien des projets d’Applications ARTES. Les conditions spéciales offertes par un opérateur comme SES constituent un atout important dans les phases de développement de tous nouveaux services et applications satellitaires. Ce dispositif contribuera à générer des idées originales et à bâtir des relations dès le début d’un projet, ainsi qu’à préparer en amont la commercialisation des services opérationnels à l’issue dudit projet », a déclaré pour sa part Amnon Ginati, Directeur du département Applications télécoms et intégrées de l’ESA.

A propos de l’Agence spatiale européenne

L’Agence spatiale européenne (ESA) est la porte d’accès de l’Europe à l’espace.

L’ESA est une organisation intergouvernementale créée en 1975, dont la mission consiste à gérer le développement des capacités spatiales de l’Europe et à faire en sorte que les investissements dans l’espace bénéficient aux citoyens européens et du monde entier.

L’ESA compte 19 Etats membres : l’Allemagne, l’Autriche, la Belgique, le Danemark, l’Espagne, la Finlande, la France, la Grèce, l’Irlande, l’Italie, le Luxembourg, la Norvège, les Pays-Bas, le Portugal, la République tchèque, la Roumanie, le Royaume-Uni, la Suède et la Suisse. 17 d’entre eux sont également membres de l’UE. L’ESA a signé des accords de coopération avec 9 autres Etats membres de l’UE et négocie actuellement un accord avec la Bulgarie. La Pologne s’apprête à devenir le 20ème Etat membre de l’Agence. Le Canada participe à certains programmes de l’ESA au titre d’un accord de coopération.

En coordonnant les ressources financières et intellectuelles de ses membres, l’ESA peut entreprendre des programmes et des activités qui vont bien au-delà de ce que pourrait réaliser chacun de ces pays à titre individuel.

L’ESA développe les lanceurs, les satellites et les moyens sol dont l’Europe a besoin pour jouer un rôle de premier plan sur la scène spatiale mondiale. Aujourd’hui, elle lance des satellites d’observation de la Terre, de navigation, de télécommunication et d’astronomie, elle envoie des sondes jusqu’aux confins du système solaire et elle mène en coopération des projets d’exploration humaine de l’espace.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace. In fact, Forrester reported that 68 percent of technology and business decision-makers characterize wearables as a top priority for 2015. Recognizing their business value early on, FinancialForce.com was the first to bring ERP to wearables, helping streamline communication across front and back office functions. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kevin Roberts...
One of the bewildering things about DevOps is integrating the massive toolchain including the dozens of new tools that seem to crop up every year. Part of DevOps is Continuous Delivery and having a complex toolchain can add additional integration and setup to your developer environment. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Miko Matsumura, Chief Marketing Officer of Gradle Inc., will discuss which tools to use in a developer stack, how to provision the toolchain to minimize onboa...
Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business.

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Robert Endo, owner and engagement manager of Intrepid D...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
