Pacis-1 is part of the ESA’s Govsatcom Precursor programme and is the first step in demonstrating how the European space industry can support the EU’s Govsatcom initiative and leverage governmental and commercial satellite services to provide secure access to satellite communications for a wide range of governmental applications. The project will demonstrate in-field usage of the system for civil protection, border control, humanitarian missions, maritime surveillance, among other applications.

Under the agreement, SES will put in place the architecture and service concept of Pacis-1, leveraging the space assets and ground infrastructure of the stakeholders involved in the project.

Under the Pacis-1 public-private partnership, the members of the consortium will be providing specific technological contributions, including engineering, satellite capacity, commercial, project management and other services. Other industrial partners that have joined the SES-led consortium are Redu Space Services, GovSat, Newtec, QinetiQ and Tekever.

“Pacis-1 is an excellent example of how a Public-Private Partnership at the national level - between a commercial operator and a Member State - can evolve in a wider European setting with the support of ESA, to prepare for EU Govsatcom. The pooling & sharing demonstrations are hosted in a European Centre of Excellence for space cyber security services, and may provide the Centre with the opportunity for an operational role in governmental secure Satcom at EU level,” said Carlo Elia, Head of the Telecommunications Technologies, Products and Systems Department, ESA.

“The Pacis-1 project is a unique and truly innovative way to approach a partnership between the industry and ESA, and will pave the way for governments to have flexible access to secure satellite communications, in a cost-efficient way,” said Gerhard Bethscheider, Managing Director of SES TechCom Services, SES Networks. “As pioneers in the government satellite communications area, we are very proud to be part of Pacis-1 and we are very much looking forward to the demonstrations of the capabilities and end-to-end solutions which will take place as part of this project.”

Top UK university hospital unveils data that support the use of rapid infusion for Truxima® (CT-P10, biosimilar rituximab) in patients with advanced-stage follicular lymphoma11.12.2017 11:00Tiedote

New data from University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) on the safety and tolerability of rapid infusion of CT-P10 were presented this weekend at the 59th American Society of Hematology (ASH) Annual Meeting. The results showed that rapid infusion of CT-P10 was well-tolerated across all patient groups and patients could be safely switched from reference rituximab to CT-P10 without reverting to slower infusion rates1. The independent study examined the infusion-related reactions (IRRs) in three different patient groups: rituximab naive, those switching directly from reference rituximab to CT-P10, and those that received their last dose of reference rituximab at least 6 months prior to the study.1 The administration of rituximab is associated with IRRs which occur most frequently during the first infusion. To reduce the risk of IRRs, it is the man
