3DS OUTSCALE, CS GROUP, EBRC and RHEA Group join their forces to develop new Trusted Services for the fast growing and sensitive “Space” industry, following and thereby stimulating the European GAIA-X initiative.

This alliance, combining CS GROUP and RHEA Group, two major players in the Space Data Systems Industry with EBRC and 3DS OUTSCALE, two trusted and certified European Cloud Service Providers, will engage in developing new use cases in the Space industry guaranteeing the GAIA-X principles: European data protection, openness and transparency, authenticity and trust, European digital sovereignty, modularity and interoperability.

The GAIA-X Digital Space Alliance for Space is open to other European partners.

“GAIA-X: EU’s most important digital aspiration in a generation”

Gaia-X is a strategic project initiated by Europe for Europe. GAIA-X aims at developing common requirements for a federated trustworthy and secured Data Infrastructure for Europe to Europe’s data sovereignty. With GAIA-X, Europe is building the launch pad for the « Airbus of Artificial Intelligence ».

GAIA-X ensuring efficient and trusted access to space-based data and related information

The Space Industry has experienced a major growth over the last two decades, with the implementation of major European and institutional satellite programs for navigation, communication and Earth observation, as well as through strong traditional and disruptive “New Space” commercial initiatives. As a result, the amount of space-generated data has surged. Today, our everyday life heavily relies on such data within many consumer & professional applications and use cases. Our dependency on space data and the information it provides demands that such data is handled securely, robustly, accurately, and efficiently, and that its European sovereignty is assured. This is the mission that the four core partners want to stimulate through the creation of this GAIA-X Digital Space Alliance.

This initiative could help develop new services to respond to European stakes:

  • To keep the business of ground segment development and mission operation in Europe, thanks to a federation of European cloud;
  • To use the processing power of European Cloud and then generating new business for European industry;
  • To keep European Space Data in Europe and foster the creation of new European business services leveraging this data;
  • To generate and reference European Space data to ease their integration in other markets;
  • To boost the business of European Ground Stations providers;
  • To accelerate time to market of future European new space missions.

“EBRC stands for: European Business Reliance Centre. We are deeply committed to the success of the GAIA-X project and are fully aligned with the objective of this ambitious European initiative. Headquartered in Luxembourg, seat of European Institutions, EBRC considers space as a strategic fast-growing industry. We are proud to bring to this alliance our “TrustedCloudEurope” and CyberResilience expertise.”, announced Yves Reding, CEO EBRC.

“Challenges for securing Space data and the related applications, and their end-users, today constitute a major concern across Europe. RHEA Group, as expert in end-to-end space engineering and space cybersecurity services, is convinced that long-term sustainability of those European societal upsides shall go through collaborative approach of the stakeholders, a secured and sovereign foundation that GAIA-X allows, and that we will leverage with our 3 core partners.”, says André Sincennes, Managing Director of RHEA Group.

“CS GROUP, expert in mission critical systems in strategic sectors especially in space industry, supports GAIA-X initiative to promote its fundamental values which are utmost importance to best serve our customers. Our open source and infrastructure agnostic strategy, which allows us to build non-locking solutions for our customers, will be an added-value to create new digital services for easier access to space: satellites, constellations and data.”, says Sylvain D’HOINE, Executive Vice President in charge of Space Activities of CS GROUP.

“Through GAIA-X, we are building, all together, a sovereign and reliable digital infrastructure and an ecosystem for innovation in Europe. At the crossing of high security, reliability and sovereignty concerns, Space is among the core subjects that will deeply benefit from the GAIA-X initiative", says Servane Augier, Chief Operating Officer at 3DS OUTSCALE.
