Better Satellite World



Supported By

The modern world literally runs on satellite – from data networks and TV to Internet, agriculture, energy and transport – though far too few people know it.  The commercial satellite industry is now attracting a new generation of entrepreneurs and investors dedicated to lowering launch costs, downsizing spacecraft, servicing them in orbit and delivering ubiquitous connectivity at competitive prices. The Better Satellite World campaign shows the world why our industry, though often invisible, is indispensable to modern life, through powerful stories and videos that depict space and satellite technologies contributing to the economy, society and sustainability of planet Earth.

SSPI Members can download high-resolution copies of all videos for use in promotion and presentations at no cost. Visit our online store to access them.
