      [Via Satellite 05-05-2016] Save the Children International, a charity organization that sends humanitarian response teams to natural disaster and emergency sites, has used Paradigm’s test facility to train key field personnel in satellite and radio communications. A small group of international team members from the charity spent a week at the company’s facility in Alton, Hampshire in the U.K. last month to learn how to set up and deploy satellite communications equipment.

      Save the Children International teams leverage satellite communications during their trips to coordinate responses, safety and security. Over the next year, the Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) will be training technicians in the skills they will need to provide communications and connectivity in an emergency response setting.

      Paradigm’s facility offers training rooms, equipped indoor test rooms and outdoor terminal test sites for training, testing and hands-on practical experience. It provides a broad range of satellite equipment along with good visibility and connectivity to satellite services.
