SSPI Upstate New York Chapter (US)

Welcome to the Upstate New York  chapter of the Society of Satellite Professionals International.  Serving the “new space and satellite” industry in Upstate New York and the region North of Putnam County, this chapter represents the future of our industry.  The influence of satellites on every single device, communication and society is increasing.  Satellites are helping us manage the systems that enable middle classes to rise in parts of the world where none existed and creating wealth and well-being in societies everywhere.  Deal flow, innovation and human networking are key to the growth of the industry.  Our new chapter has them all in abundance!
