ComTalks 2: “Connecting the world through space” - a talk with Alessia Tomatis

On Zoom platform

First seminar of the ComTalks series

The speaker:

Alessia Tomatis obtained her Master degree in Telecommunications at Politecnico di Torino in 2005. Within her thesis, held in collaboration with Centro Ricerche RAI, she discovered the amazing world of communications via satellite. In 2006 she joined Eutelsat working on new satellite missions, where she is now Head of Fleet Development and Management in the Strategy Department.


Today space is more important than ever. In this seminar Alessia Tomatis will present her experience all along the communication satellite value chain: how new satellite communication missions are defined, how satellites are designed, negotiated, procured, launched and later operated in-orbit. She will highlight how satellite communications are today at the heart of our businesses, more than what one can think.

Moderated by professor Fabio Dovis (Politecnico di Torino - PIC4SeR@PoliTO)

After the talks, a Q&A session will follow to discuss with the Speakers about their experiences, and motivation in taking their master studies.
