Unlocking the Future: Secure SATCOM in the EU – A Comprehensive Overview
Demand for secure satellite communications (SATCOM) is on the rise. The use of SATCOM supporting Crisis Management, Surveillance, and Key Infrastructure in the EU will increase by a factor of 14 between 2025 and 2040, reaching around 186 Gbps by 2040 (Fixed Satellite Services only).
Such a large increase is driven by geopolitical trends, climate change, economic growth, national and international regulations, and EU policies such as the EU Space for Security and Defence strategy, recently approved by the Council.
In this context, and with GOVSATCOM and IRIS2 underway, experts at the European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) produced the first-ever Secure SATCOM Market and User Technology Report. The long study aims to help relevant public and private actors identify business opportunities, set the basis for developing the market, and enable the realization of benefits from satellite communications, both in the EU and worldwide.

To further communicate the importance of secure SATCOM across sectors and support users in their safety and security-sensitive missions, EUSPA is planning to wrap up on the recently concluded ENTRUSTED and shed some light on what is coming next.
Eventually, as a promoter of Research and Innovation, EUSPA published last month a Horizon Europe call, which features a specific topic dedicated to GOVSATCOM.
