PEACESAT is committed to lessening the digital
divide in the Pacific Islands and continues the long established
efforts in developing and maintaining partnerships. PEACESAT cannot
achieve its missions alone and has established extensive relationships
with many public, private, local, federal, and regional organizations.
PEACESAT assists Pacific Basin communities, within
resource constraints, to plan and develop local program and technology
infrastructure that take advantage of grant programs and incorporate
self-sustainability and education and training in telecommunication
policy, technology and applications.
The PEACESAT network provides limited bandwidth
capacity, however as other opportunities arise and Pacific Island
entities migrate to commercial or other public service connections,
the limited PEACESAT satellite capacity will be made available to
the underserved and the very remote areas where telephone capacity
may not be available.
PEACESAT continues to promote Pacific Island
initiatives in national and international arenas with an objective
of elevating recognition of the unique challenge of the region.
PEACESAT pursues its mission to improve
telecommunications in the Pacific Island regions through research
and projects which are funded by government agencies, private foundations,
and partners. Our project work is based on research and considerable
experiences. The work of one project frequently informs and builds
on the work of others to form clusters of interrelated projects.
