The ENTRUSTED consortium associates partners representing, both, national interests of participating EU Member States and the interests of EU institutions and agencies dealing with security or defence, who can benefit from the use of secure SatCom services.
The European Union Agency for the Space Programme (EUSPA) was initially established as a Community Agency on 12 July 2004, by Council Regulation (EC) 1321/2004, status amended in 2006 by Council Regulation (EC) No 1942/2006. Since 12 May 2021, EUSPA has officially succeeded the European GNSS Agency (GSA). EUSPA’s mission is to link space to user needs, and to achieve the highest return on European GNSS investment in terms of benefits to users, EU economic growth and competitiveness. The Agency manages the Galileo and EGNOS programmes, and remains active in various areas aimed at security, research and development, increasing space’s contribution to the EU market. EUSPA enables GNSS-based services, and continuously improves GNSS services & infrastructure. EUSPA is responsible for the security accreditation of all EU Space Programme components. In addition, EUSPA coordinates user-related aspects of GOVSATCOM. Thanks to its expertise, EUSPA has become the coordinator of the H2020 ENTRUSTED project.
