Satcom Systems

A system coherent to your security standards

Jamming and interference – deliberate or accidental – has always been an issue for satellite communications.  Its increasing rate requires more effective countermeasures to ensure mission-critical connectivity is resilient, safe and secure at all times, in all situations.

A system is not just about the hardware – it is about bridging the gap between user and satellite at a system level.

At the backbone of a satellite communications network is the network management system. Airbus Secure Communications are experts in designing, developing, installing and managing custom management systems and hardware for government, military and commercial users across the globe.

We have designed, delivered and operate some of the world’s most secure military network management systems including the UK’s Skynet 5 system, Germany’s SATCOMBw, Yahsat’s system and more recently have been awarded to provide France’s first digital military ultra-fast broadband satellite communications system, COMCEPT, for Athena-Fidus.

Using our decades of experience and building our industry partnerships, Airbus has established a broad solutions portfolio to allow you to securely fulfil the connectivity needs of your mission all the way from your headquarter to in-theatre.
