The Next Frontier: Space-based Connectivity
Even as the EUCS process continues to move forward, the EU has proposed sweeping, onerous sovereignty requirements for its forthcoming space-based secure communications system. As currently drafted, U.S. and other international companies would not be able to compete for or participate in any related projects, even as a supplier or subcontractor.
The rules are very clear:
To preserve the EU essential security interest and in particular the security, integrity and resilience of the secure connectivity system, the participants in consortia bidding in a procurement procedure must fulfil the following cumulative criteria:
These criteria apply to the concessionaire(s), primes, and suppliers of critical technologies, goods, and services.
This is another area where the U.S. government should vigorously insist on non-discrimination. Space-based connectivity is a public good and economic opportunity that would benefit greatly from increased transatlantic coordination. Further transatlantic divides will drive up costs, reduce efficiencies, and limit our ability to compete with non-market economies in an area that is critical to both economic and national security.
