New EU space-based secure connectivity system proposed
The European Commission has proposed an ambitious plan for an EU space-based secure communication system. The need for a secure and resilient global connectivity increases with the digitisation of the economy and society, as well as with the increasing geopolitical and cybersecurity threats.
The EU space-based secure communication system is meant to:
- ensure worldwide uninterrupted access to secure and cost-effective satellite communication services for the protection of critical infrastructures, surveillance, external actions and crisis management
- allow for the provision of commercial services by the private sector that can enable access to advanced, reliable and fast connections to all citizens and businesses across Europe
Space technology is essential to facilitating our daily lives and contributing to a more digital, green and resilient future for our planet.
