This weeks SpaceQ podcast is a live recording from the Canadian Space Summit. The opening keynote speaker for the conference was Sergy Mummert, Senior Vice President, Global Cloud & Strategic Partnerships, SES Networks.
While the focus of the talk is on SES Networks with an emphasis on the how they’re building a Cloud-Optimized Satellite Ecosystem and their O3b Medium Earth Orbit constellation, it’s important to note why they were a key sponsor to the conference.
While SES has been doing business in Canada for many years, including owning a majority stake in Ciel Satellite Group, they’re now opening a new Canadian office with the aim of having a greater presence in Canada. They’ve hired their first Canadian employee, John Clarke, an industry veteran, as their Senior Sales Director.
