Fields of activity
Telecommunications, terrestrial and satellite, is the field in which SNI first became active. Its particularly broad experience here since the era of telecoms liberalization extends to:
- governmental and private regulatory and policy consultancy
- strategic advisory support regarding infrastructure and connectivity projects
Space applications and policy constitute the other major pillar of SNI’s competence, and the one for which SNI is usually best known. The SNI team includes long sectoral experience from the policy to the industrial level and across a wide spectrum of programme areas and issues, national, regional and international. Team members have made considerable contributions in the literature and some have patents in their name for inventions they made.
SNI in both these fields benefits from its contacts with European and international organizations and businesses as well as close sectoral marketing through the academic affiliations of SNI team members at institutions of academic excellence. The competence indicated here also extends to revelant neighbouring fields, such as satnav for air traffic management and IP and innovation policy related to strategic IT.
