Zacatecas, Mexico, Oct. 11 (Notimex).- The Mexican Space Agency (AEM, for its acronym in Spanish) highlighted the importance of sidereal space to face the great challenges of the planet, such as improving telecommunications, reducing the digital divide, natural disasters and advancing health informatics.
The call was made by the director of the AEM, Francisco Mendieta Jimenez, to inaugurate the Radioelectric Spectrum Colloquium its scientific and experimental use in space, carried out by the agency and which brought together specialists in Mexico to boost spatial development in Zacatecas.
He acknowledged that technologically now we are living an important time, so Mexico must take advantage of its strengths, such as its experience in geostationary systems and new tools New Space.
From the above, that before specialists, academics and students, the head of the AEM will decide to develop the capacities in a more organic way, that is, to adapt them to regional, national and global vision needs.
During the colloquium the experts will analyze the adequate use of the radioelectric spectrum, which allows the correct functioning of the terrestrial and satellite telecommunications systems, avoids interference between systems and band saturation, which facilitates the transmission of information, data and control of satellite devices.
The meeting is organized by the AEM, the Autonomous University of Zacatecas (UAZ, for its acronym in Spanish) and the government of the state of Zacatecas, through the Zacatecan Council of Science, Technology and Innovation (Cozcyt, for its acronym in Spanish).
At the meeting, which is based on the facilities of Cozcyt, it seeks to find theories that allow a clearer picture of the status of the process of obtaining orbital resources and granting frequencies for satellites in Mexico and strengthen this sector in the country.
Among the work topics are the regulation of the radioelectric spectrum, up to different success stories such as AztechSat1, the first Mexican satellite cube that will be sent to space and the collaborative use of frequencies to boost the space sector in the country.
On the other hand, the holder of the Cozcyt, Agustin Enciso Muñoz, evidenced the commitment of the state authorities to promote spatial development and as an example referred to the creation of the Regional Space Development Center (Credez, for its acronym in Spanish) that is being built in Quantum City of Knowledge.
