Airbus and Northrop Grumman sign MOU for future UK milsatcoms


Leaders in secure military satellite communications looking to partner to address future UK secure communications requirements.


Airbus and Northrop Grumman have today signed a Memorandum of Understanding covering their intention to address the UK Ministry of Defence’s (MOD) SKYNET Enduring Capability (SKEC) military satellite communications requirements as an integrated joint team. 

The combination of the experience, knowledge, and capabilities of two of the world’s leading space companies into a joint team will provide the MOD with optimal solutions for the space and ground segments of the SKYNET architecture.  The team will work together to address future aspects of the SKYNET programme ensuring that UK social value and industrial participation is maximised and that the ‘allied by design’ approach is implemented to drive towards interoperability with key national allies.
