SES is expanding its partnership with the University of Luxembourg to encompass more cybersecurity elements, the company announced Oct. 14. Together with the University of Luxembourg’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT), the two organizations will create a joint lab that will explore the benefits of high-throughput satellite systems in the areas of next-generation networks, including quantum communications and cybersecurity.

The partnership will focus on studying the potential of next-generation high-throughput satellite systems and multi-orbit capabilities, such as SES’s Geostationary and Non-Geostationary Medium-Earth Orbit (MEO) fleet.

As well as this joint initiative, SES and SnT are also collaborating to leverage early access to Luxembourg’s supercomputer MeluXina. Rated as one of the most powerful in the world, the petascale computer is known for its business orientation, serving a large variety of complex data-driven computational workloads, such as Artificial Intelligence and more.

“The past 11 years has seen us achieve great success in our research activities with SES, spearheading new technologies with impact on standardization, satellite-terrestrial integration, 5G, and more. We are delighted to expand the collaboration and broaden into new areas that will benefit information and communication technologies both in Luxembourg and beyond,” Prof. Björn Ottersten, director of SnT, said in a statement.
