About IET and MFIIS

The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), earlier known as IEE, Institution of Electrical Engineers, is one of the world’s leading professional societies for the engineering and technology community. The IET has more than 150,000 members in 127 countries and offices in Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific. The IET provides a global knowledge network to facilitate the exchange of ideas and promote the positive role of science, engineering and technology in the world. The IET Kolkata Network is located in the City of Joy, the vibrant metropolis of India. It is the only city in India which had nurtured five Nobel laureates. Being the oldest in India, the Network is proud of its history. Its origin dates back to 1944 when good number of British Engineers had taken initiative to form the then Calcutta Centre of The Institution of Electrical Engineers.

Since inception in 2012, Michael Faraday IET India Summit attracted attention of professional communities all over India as one of the flagship event of IET Kolkata Network. Then, Michael Faraday IET International Summit (MFIIS) was organized in 2015 where all presented paper were published in IET Digital Library. In 2020, fourth MFIIS will be organized as an IET’s Flagship Event. It will also be a part of celebration of 75th year of Kolkata Network and 150th year of IET.

"How satellite technology is transforming the daily lives of people" By

Dave Davis,
Chairman of IET Satellite Technical Network, United Kingdom

Dave Davis (MBE BSc(Hons) CEng FIET FITP; Technical Director, Global Accounts, ST Engineering iDirect): Dave Davis has a seasoned background in Satellite Communications (Satcom). Learning his trade as an apprentice in the British Army in 1988, he went on to specialize in Satcom at an early age; his first practical experience of Satcom being the response to Hurricane Andrew in the Caribbean in 1992. Months later he was in the first wave of troops deployed to Bosnia as a satellite terminal technician and continued to work with satellite terminals until his final tour as the military Satcom instructor. He was awarded the MBE in 2002 for meritorious military service.

Leaving the Army in 2003, he went into industry and continued to build his professional qualifications. He joined NSSLGlobal, a leading Satcom distribution partner, as a Systems Engineer, before becoming a Project Manager and Engineering Manager. He led many cutting edge projects and was responsible for providing communications to many high profile expeditions, events and deployments. In 2013, he went on to become the Defence and Security specialist at ST Engineering iDirect, before moving to be the lead iDirect engineer supporting the ground-breaking Inmarsat Global Xpress (GX) network. Dave sits on various national and international panels as a technical advisor.

In his spare time, Dave volunteers with the IET and ITP as a mentor and Professional Recognition Advisor. He also volunteers with the Newman Holiday Trust (www.newmantrust.org) and Team Rubicon UK (www.teamrubiconuk.org), both organisations are always looking for new volunteers.
