EU plans €6bn sat network to compete with OneWeb, Starlink

(16 Feb 2022) "The European Union is moving ahead on its controversial plans to create a quantum-secure satellite system that will compete with Amazon's Kuiper, OneWeb, SpaceX's Starlink and others. … The EU said that security will be one of the main differences from competing low Earth orbit (LEO) systems, 'relying on quantum cryptography through the EuroQCI, and enhanced cybersecurity through a secure-by-design approach for the infrastructure'."
