The Satcoms Innovation Group (SIG) has announced PEKASAT SE as its first startup member. PEKASAT specialises in spectrum management and frequency coordination of satellite networks. 
SIG has introduced a startup membership tier following its recent restructure. The objective of its introduction is to promote the group’s accessibility to innovative startup companies within the satellite communications industry. SIG promotes innovation within the satellite communication industry with the aim of improving operational efficiency and reducing impact.
PEKASAT delivers solutions for spectrum management within satellite communications. Its software, Skycoor, has been developed for the analysis of satellite networks located in geostationary orbit. It both assesses the risk of interference between selected satellites as well as identifies the cause of interference incidents. Additionally, Pekasat owns an orbital slot for GEO which is available for lease. It is involved within the ground station segment where it offers its services to LEO/MEO and GEO satellite operators.
Michal Silling, Sales Manager, PEKASAT commented, “Joining SIG is set to be beneficial for our company as it allows us to exchange thoughts and ideas with other professionals and organisations within the industry. Managing spectrum is key in delivering high-quality satellite services and we feel it’s an important discussion within satcom. We look forward to meeting with both the SIG team and its members to bring our knowledge and expertise to industry discussions.”
Helen Weedon, SIG Managing Director, added, “At SIG we feel it is hugely valuable to welcome startup companies to the group. We see many innovative and original solutions from smaller organisations and it’s important that we provide them with a platform to discuss the challenges of the satcom industry. PEKASAT is set to bring extensive knowledge around spectrum management, a topic which remains hugely relevant due to the changing landscape within satcom. 
In addition to the startup tier, SIG has recently introduced its free academic Membership. Other membership tiers include director, full and associate.
