University of Birmingham - Space Environment and Radio Engineering Group (SERENE)
SERENE is a new research group in the School of Electronic, Electrical and Systems Engineering at the University of Birmingham. It has been set up to develop a programme of internationally recognised, inter-disciplinary research to measure, model and mitigate the effects of the ionosphere on radio systems. SERENE is supported by a Chair that has been co-sponsored by DSTL and the Royal Academy of Engineering. It is expected that the group will grow the UK capability in this area and bridge the gap between academia and industry.

Malta Amateur Radio League (MARL)
The Malta Amateur Radio League is the official representative body for Amateur Radio in Malta. Since MARL was established in 1922, its aim was to bring together people interested in amateur radio and electronics to discuss and defend amateur radio matters and opinions with the local authorities. It provides educational facilities for members and is also fully equipped with an amateur radio station. Most miniature civilian satellites use Amateur Radio frequency bands which require licensing by the national representative bodies. Courses leading to such a license are being offered to engineering students by MARL.
