Hearts in the Ice with Jessika Dammert: Chief Marketing Communications Officer, MARLINK

Ever wondered how Satellite Communications work, and why they are needed?

While the Hearts In the Ice team spend seven gruelling months – including three of complete darkness – in a tiny trapper’s hut at Bamsebu, satellite communication has been their lifeline for transmitting environmental data, weather and wildlife observations, and keeping in touch with their support team, as well as educational institutions, research organisations and other relevant stakeholders. Since there are no conventional phone lines, internet or 3/4G options in the Arctic, that satellite communication has been provided to them by Marlink, experts in connecting people and businesses around the world and across all areas where regular connectivity cannot reach or is not available.

During this session on Global Women in Science, Marlink’s Chief Marketing Communications Officer, Jessika Dammert, will share some of her knowledge on satellites, and will answer questions like What are satellites, How are satellites used, How do they reach space, and How do they stay up there?! She will also explain how and why Marlink support Hilde and Sunniva, and demonstrate the complex data journey initiated when one of them presses ‘Send’ on their phone.
