Advances in mobile connectivity are rapidly shaping new markets and societal change, while the need for secure communications poses pressing challenges for institutions and enterprises. This panel focuses on the Govsatcom Precursor programme and the announcement of a 5G Action Plan, twoactivities led by ESA, where space-based communications provide solutions, shape infrastructure and exploit market opportunities.
Govsatcom Precursor is a first step by ESA to demonstrate what the European space industry can do to support the EU’s Govsatcom programme, an initiative designed to pool and share relevant governmental and commercial satellite solutions to provide secure and guaranteed access to satellite communications.
The 5G Action Plan sees 15 satellite operators, service providers, manufacturers and ESA Member States join forces to form a strategic vision for the role satellites can play in providing cost-effective solutions within future 5G networks, the mobile communications solution of the coming decade.
