Satellite operator Eutelsat’s director of communication system operations Mark Rawlins has been named the new chairman of the Space Data Association (SDA), an international non-profit association of satellite operators that supports the controlled, reliable and efficient sharing of space environment and RF spectrum data.
Rawlins succeeds the current SDA Chairman, Ronald Busch, vice-president of network engineering for Intelsat.
The SDA was set up in 2009 by the international commercial satellite operator community to coordinate activity and safeguard space-based infrastructure.
“The SDA is making a significant contribution to enhancing the safety of satellite operations, and safeguarding the operational environment in space communications” said Rawlins.
”Our membership has steadily grown to embrace a broad range of members and participants. One of our key challenges going forward will be to enhance the services provided by the SDA to make for a better working environment for all space borne services for all industry sectors with a particular focus on the Radio Frequency environment. This will need to happen in the same spirit in which the SDA was created, to be able share data in a safe way that improves the efficiency and coordination of activities.”
