Satellite Interference Reduction GroupThe Satellite Interference Reduction Group (IRG) is the global industry organisation with the mission of combating and mitigating radio frequency interference (RFI) for an interference-free satellite frequency spectrum.

Satellite Spy’s Blog posts include rocket and launch vehicle successes and failures, and outline some major space and defence companies and facilities in different countries. Stories and photos about real incidents, travel, people, wildlife and events from over 35 years working worldwide in satellite communications.

The rest of the site provides detailed technical information, a knowledge base and a reading list, all of which are continually being updated.

AIAA-logo_newTag_CMYK(130x50)If you’re looking at this site then you probably have an interest in space, satellites and other things that fly. If this is the case I highly recommend you consider joining the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA), and you don’t have to be an American! AIAA is the world’s largest technical society dedicated to the global aerospace profession. Nearly 20% of AIAA’s members live outside the United States: more than 6,000 professional and student members from 86 countries. There are so many advantages of being an AIAA member – just click on their logo and have a look!

  1. I have just stumbled onto your blog and am fascinated by it. I am a historian of science — mostly of geo- and space physics — and I’m working on (among other things) a project on the history of geomagnetic research satellites, helio-, magnetosphere, etc. I’m casting a broad (if shallow) net. Thanks for pulling this site together.
