Telespazio and Adista establish a strategic partnership for the distribution of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite services to civil security stakeholders.

10 May 2023 13:00

Telespazio France, a company controlled by Telespazio (Leonardo 67%/Thales 33%), and Adista are partnering to meet the growing connectivity needs of civil security stakeholders. This partnership aims to provide next-generation satellite connectivity to facilitate digital applications for firefighters in the field. As European experts in satellite space services and French telecommunications, Telespazio France and Adista ensure the interoperability of their resources and services through public procurement.


Cutting-edge Technology for a Significant Advantage in the Field

Unlike traditional satellite internet services in geostationary orbit, the new generation of high-speed, low-latency OneWeb satellite connectivity promises geographical flexibility and rapid deployment. This is ideal for Departmental Fire and Rescue Services (SDIS), as OneWeb can be quickly activated in mobile command vehicles without the technical constraints of geostationary satellites. Furthermore, low Earth orbit satellite constellations provide complete coverage, both on land and at sea, including in remote areas that are crucial for emergency operations.


Facilitating Emergency Response with New Connectivity

With the increasing frequency of wildfires and extreme weather events, innovative solutions are needed. These may involve the use of communicating robots and drones, where transmission times must be as fast and resilient as possible. Another application is the creation of "tactical bubbles" in the operational theater, with dedicated bandwidth for firefighters and other stakeholders such as prefects, gendarmerie, and police, enhancing the efficiency of emergency responses. The components of the SDIS Information Systems, increasingly composed of SaaS applications, also require flawless connectivity and execution times.


A Sovereign Pan-European Solution

This new technology distinguishes itself by its sovereignty, offering governmental agencies, businesses, and communities a stable and secure European alternative to low Earth orbit satellite constellations from the United States. "Already a partner with 2 SDIS in France, Adista confirms through this collaboration its commitment to providing them with the best innovations. By combining our expertise with Telespazio France, we offer a European solution that promises unprecedented reliability for SDIS," explains Amine Gasmi, Director of Connectivity Offer at Adista. "This joint approach allows our government clients to centrally procure satellite telecommunication services through the framework agreements held by Telespazio France, as well as through Adista's multi-technology operator service accessible to Departmental Fire and Rescue Services in a decentralized manner," affirms Pierre Glatt, Commercial Director of Telespazio France.
