Starion is a Tier 1 integrator of end-to-end quantum safe communications, for space and using space assets. We work with carefully selected partners to provide operational solutions over fibre and satellite in existing national and international environments, no matter how complex.

Our solutions employ the latest in quantum key distribution (QKD) and post-quantum cryptography, the next enablers of cybersecurity for communications for critical business applications.

Case study: Managing the INT-UQKD project

Since 2022, we’ve been managing the International Use Cases for Operational QKD Applications and Services (INT-UQKD) project, which is demonstrating use cases for QKD by deploying operational capability in existing, real-life international IT environments. This includes implementation of QKD networks connecting Luxembourg, Belgium, Singapore, Canada and the UK.

The definition and validation of use cases is expected to guide future international QKD solutions, with a focus on digital sovereignty and strategic autonomy. Creating real-life operational demonstrations helps with the assessment of technology and security compliance, and identification of related policy requirements.

We’re also acting as system integrator for INT-UQKD. Project partners are POST Luxembourg, the University of Luxembourg’s SnT, HITEC Luxembourg, evolutionQ (Canada) and SpeQtral (Singapore).

INT-UQKD is funded through ESA’s ARTES programme and by the Singaporean Office for Space Technology & Industry.
