ENTRUSTED is a European research project coordinated by the European GNSS Agency

19 April 2021

ENTRUSTED (European Networking for satellite Telecommunication Roadmap for the governmental Users requiring Secure, inTeroperable, innovativE and standardiseD services) is a European research project, coordinated by the European GNSS Agency (GSA), that aims at providing user perspective to the developed EU GOVSATCOM through an established cooperation of EU Member States representatives and EU agencies. ENTRUSTED will derive a prioritised set of user requirements for secure SatCom services and systems, as well as a user technology research and innovation roadmap. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.

A European-wide survey aimed at identifying user needs and use cases for future EU GOVSATCOM services will be carried out by EU Member States and EU entities participating in the ENTRUSTED project. The survey

is addressed to governmental and institutional users managing security-critical missions, operations and infrastructures. It will allow assessing the current and evolving needs of prospective EU GOVSATCOM users, as well as their use of existing secure SatCom capabilities. Survey results will be used for deriving a set of prioritised user requirements, which will be subsequently considered in the implementing regulations for the GOVSATCOM component of the EU Space Programme. Information will be collected between April and June.

ASI is partecipating to ENTRUSTED consortium, contributing to the collection and analysis of user requiremets of secure satellite communication services, and contributing to current and future technological analysis. During the project, demonstration activities of SATCOM services will be performed, and ASI will partecipate with its satellite infrastrucutures and capabilities. In the framework of user consultation, ASI represents the national Point of Contact for the user requirements collection and analysis.

If you are an Italian institutional user and you want give your contribution to ENTRUSTED survey, visit the ENTRUSTED website and contact entrusted@asi.it to have more information and send to us your feedback.
