As part of the COVID-19 contingency plans laid out by the National Institute of Aerospace Technology (INTA), Isdefe’s personnel is helping to, among other things, provide the ground segment services at the Canaries Space Centre (CEC) and INTA-Torrejón (CEIT) for the search and rescue (COSPAS-SARSAT) and PAZ missions, which are deemed essential in the framework of measures adopted by the Administration.
#Stempills are webinars and training sessions for the children of Isdefe employees and are intended to inspire and promote an interest in science and technology.
The training sessions will be given initially by the Isdefe volunteers who took part in the initiative on 11 February, “International Day of Women and Girls in Science”, the goal being to open them later to any employees who wish to take part as speakers.
This includes the services that the organisation provides to the Cyberdefence Joint Command (MCCD), in which Isdefe engineers from its Cyberdefence Department support the Command with prevention, detection and remedial measures for communications networks, both through telework and in person for those activities that are deemed essential.
As part of the work that Isdefe is doing for the Sub-Directorate General for Planning and Managing the Digital Transformation (SGPGTD), Isdefe and other partner companies are continuing to provide support to all of the activities assigned, most notably the operational maintenance of the LexNET electronic communication system, and the MINERVA case management system, both of which are part of the Electronic Court Record System.
