Kacific announced as recipient of the 2018 Better Satellite World Award from Space & Satellite Professionals International

Oct 30 2018 / in Blog , News , Press Release , / by Kacific

Space & Satellite Professionals International (SSPI) recently announced that Kacific will receive a 2018 Better Satellite World Award.

The Better Satellite World Award honours established companies along with disruptive innovators who use satellite systems to make the world a more prosperous, healthier, better-educated, sustainable and inclusive home for humankind.

An international jury consisting of a broad cross-section of industry thought leaders and distinguished professionals selected Kacific as a recipient.

“The modern world literally runs on satellite technology though few of the world’s people know it.”
– Robert Bell, SSPI Executive Director

“With this year’s recipients, we honour organizations using satellite to spread economic opportunity and improve resilience in the face of adversity. Their work – little known to the world – is making that world a better, safer and more equitable place,” said Bell.

OUR DIFFERENCE
Kacific was founded with the purpose of making a rapid and lasting difference to the people of South East Asia and the Pacific by providing high-quality, low-cost satellite broadband accessible from a small, easy-to-install and affordable antenna.

Once launched in 2019 Kacific’s first satellite, Kacific-1, will help connect hospitals, clinics, schools, libraries, post offices, police stations and many other public institutions in rural areas where terrestrial broadband infrastructure is not an option or not economical. Combining inexpensive, small and maintenance-free ground equipment with the highest satellite signal strength in the region, Kacific delivers low-cost, high-speed internet to local service providers and thereby enables local communities to truly participate in the digital world.

CONNECTIVITY IN DEVELOPING AREAS FOSTERS BETTER EDUCATION AND HEALTHCARE OUTCOMES

With high-speed internet available anywhere, e-education becomes a reality to provide primary and secondary school children with skills necessary to keep pace with the evolving demands in tertiary education and the job market. Connectivity also provides rural and extra-urban medical facilities with critical information and communication capacities for emergency situations, using medical databases, logistics tools and live remote access to specialist doctors, allowing them to save more lives and maintain a better standard of healthcare overall. By enabling a better use of local infrastructure, Kacific makes rural towns and villages safer and more rewarding places to live in.

We will be accepting this award at the Better Satellite World Awards Dinner on 3 December in London.
