SPACEBEL and CYSEC secure software deployment test contract from ESA

Swiss computer and network security company CYSEC and SPACEBEL, based in Belgium have been awarded a contract from the European Space Agency (ESA) to test the secure deployment of a new generation of mission control software on a satellite simulator. SPACEBEL will demonstrate cyber resilient ground segment solutions that may become the benchmark for future ESA missions and even Newspace missions. The recent attack on commercial satellite Ka-Sat illustrated how cyber threats are becoming more and more of a concern for satellite operators.
