Space Security covers both the security of satellites and their supporting infrastructures, and the use of security capabilities delivered by them to protect our way of life.
The critical national infrastructures of most nation states are heavily dependent on it. Increasingly, military and national security needs are met by civil systems, opening the civil side up to greater threats and hence a need for greater security.
We provide research, technology advice, products and services to civil, military and national security clients in:
Our products include high grade crypto devices and optical communications. We have provided innovative security advice on the key management of the Galileo PRS system and are developing secure receiver modules and a space based crypto unit.
Our space security clients are mostly government departments in the UK and European Community.
