From a European space manufacturing Industry perspective the GOVSATCOM initiative agreed in the Dec. 2013 EU Council represents a compelling case of the value-added of a European approach to the benefit of the EU, its Member States and the European Industry.

The success of such initiative will be benchmarked against the criteria of (i) the impact it will bring on the competitiveness of the sector (such as for instance the reusability of cutting-edge technologies on the commercial market) and (ii) the satisfaction of the European governmental needs for autonomous, secure, satellites-enabled communications across the world.
