A Space Network Designed for secure End-to-End connectivity
Rivada Space Networks GmbH is a disruptive new European company established to launch and operate a constellation of low-earth-orbit satellites to enable secure, global connectivity for governments and enterprises. With offices in Munich and Berlin, RSN will play a key role in the provision of Europe’s secure connectivity infrastructure.
Why Rivada Space Networks
The RSN constellation will create a unique and independent communications network in space. The company will use highpriority Ka-band ITU filings for a new broadband satellite network capable of securely connecting any two points on the globe at gigabit speeds. No other planned or existing satellite system can match this level of secure communication. Rivada Space Networks will combine the capabilities of its constellation with the patented terrestrial wireless technologies of the parent company Rivada Networks. Together we will create a carrier-independent wholesale market which will lead to a better utilization of capacities. The convergence of terrestrial and orbital connectivity will usher in a fundamental change inultra-secure, global, end-to-end enterprise-grade networks.
RSN is currently completing an RFP with major satellite manufacturers to finalize the system design and manufacturing plan, paving the way for the production and deployment of the entire constellation. Launch of the constellation is expected to start in 2024 and be completed by 2028. A network of 300 satellites will achieve global reach by mid-2026 and full constellation deployment of 600 satellites is expected by mid-2028.
