Isdefe also participated in the moderation of two round tables, the first being "The Orbit-Spectrum Resource: The Basis of Telecommunications in the Space Sphere", moderated by José Luis Ruiz Mendoza, head of the Innovation, ICT and Digital Agenda area; and, second, "Space and National and European Strategic Security, Dual Use", moderated by the director of the Robledo de Chavela Station, Moisés Fernández Álvaro.
Isdefe's Innovation team was also present at this intense week dedicated to Space Engineering, a field characterized by the need to constantly address new and increasingly complex technologies and have the requisite scientific and technological knowledge.
The Space sector requires ongoing efforts in development, innovation and the training of human teams. Isdefe has a team committed to tackling this challenge and to service, giving the company the technological capacity to face the upcoming challenges and milestones in the European space race at the very highest level.
