Bolivian Space Agency -  a new technological era

Paola Escobari


Paola Escobari is a UK Chevening Scholar doing a master's degree on RE & Microwave Engineering at the University of Surrey which undertakes cutting-edge research in wireless communications, space technology and advanced microwave technologies. She graduated in electronic and telecoms engineering from the state university of San Andres in La Paz and undertook VSAT systems and satellite teleport training at the China Academy of Space Technology.

A new technological era began in Bolivia with the launch of the country's first telecommunications satellite in 2013 and creation of the Bolivian Space Agency. This presentation describes the services, projects and responsibilities of the Bolivian Space Agency, as well as future plans in the technological field. The talk will also show the evolution and economic projection of the project, highlighting its commercial and social benefits.
