Space has become contested, congested and competitive – and therefore increasingly vulnerable. Cybersecurity threats are escalating, along with other risks such as radio frequency attacks and physical hazards. Even if your infrastructure is not the target, any space system can be exposed to collateral damage.

We help space sector organisations ensure their entire infrastructure, data and applications are secure and resilient in the face of deliberate attacks and accidental or natural events.

Digital infrastructure protection

Starion provides protection for the digital infrastructure used to connect space information systems, including ground station-to-satellite links.

Our experts:

  • Analyse threats and risks, and identify protection measures
  • Implement a security-by-design approach for new systems
  • Design, deliver and operate tailored protection solutions for every stage of the satellite communications architecture, including ground/control, space and user segments.
Debris in space around the Earth

Resilience to natural events

Space-based services are at risk from natural events such as space weather and near-Earth objects, as well as in-orbit collisions with space debris. Every part of the space infrastructure may be affected either directly, or indirectly through loss of power or communications.

We are experts in space domain awareness. We help organisations across Europe understand the threats, and we design, deliver and operate solutions to improve their resilience.
