Launch of the ENTRUSTED survey

EMSA is participating in the “European Networking for satellite Telecommunication Roadmap for the governmental Users requiring Secure, inTeroperable, innovativE and standarDised”, as a member of a consortium which includes seven EU agencies and 12 Member State representatives. The research project is also known by the acronym ENTRUSTED, and is coordinated by the European GNSS Agency (GSA) with funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program.


The project addresses secure satellite communications (SatCom) services, with the aim of providing a user perspective  for a future EU GOVSATCOM system - a new component of the European Space Programme (2021-2027) - through an established cooperation between EU Member States representatives and EU agencies.

In the framework of ENTRUSTED, a European-wide survey aimed at identifying user needs and use cases for future EU GOVSATCOM services will be carried out between April and June 2021.

The survey is addressed to governmental and institutional users managing security-critical missions, operations and infrastructures. EMSA will be in charge of identifying and reaching maritime user communities that could potentially benefit from EU GOVSATCOM. The survey results will provide user requirements for EU GOVSATCOM.
