Paris, 19 September 2022. – Wireless technology company Rivada Space Networks, a company currently launching a 600-satellite constellation to low Earth orbit (LEO), has joined the EU Secure Connectivity Programme.

Digitization and increasing geopolitical and cybersecurity threats require secure and resilient global connectivity. The European Commission’s program is aiming to ensure a space-based secure communication system crucial for infrastructure protection, surveillance and crisis management.

Rivada has submitted its contribution to the Preliminary Market Consultation of the EU Secure Connectivity Programme, the company said. Rivada’s laser-linked LEO constellation enables global reach, ultra-security, resilience and low latency. The firm is also proposing to utilize its patented Open Access Wireless Marketplace platform to optimize multi-orbit infrastructure capacity. Furthermore, the platform enables efficient use of spectrum and a fair distribution of capacity to Member States.

Rivada’s system allows customers to communicates through a single global private network without any terrestrial touchpoint. This physical separation increases cybersecurity and data sovereignty and resilience.
