Satellite service provider Intelsat S.A. announced today that more than 1,000 industry professionals have undergone training in the Intelsat-sponsored Global VSAT Forum (GVF) training program. Primary and subcontractor bandwidth customers, third-party installers, field service organizations and operators supporting customers are eligible for free or discounted Intelsat-sponsored GVF online training.

"By sponsoring training for our customers and connected organizations, we are helping them become more efficient while making an impact on reducing interference across the arc," said Intelsat's Ron Busch, chairman of the Space Data Association.

The training is offered as one of several elements of the Intelsat Interference Mitigation Initiative (I3), an effort aimed at reducing radio frequency interference (RFI). Intelsat supports the GVF Product Quality Assurance Framework, which sets guidelines to improve manufacturers' equipment used by its customers.

As a founding member of the Space Data Association, Intelsat said it has a strong history of emphasizing leadership on initiatives to mitigate signal interference and improve space situational awareness. Intelsat has partnered with several satellite operators and industry groups, as well as dozens of customers and equipment manufacturers, to make RFI mitigation a top priority.
