Next Steps for the GlobeNet Program
GlobeNet is proposed in the frame of the ARTES programme to evolve the European data relay capabilities towards further innovative features, and towards global reach, by applying proven and new technologies to an additional geostationary relay node over the Asia-Pacific region: EDRS-D.
The European Data Relay System (EDRS), a space infrastructure comprising the geostationary data relay nodes EDRS-A and EDRS-C, plus ground facilities in Munich, Redu, and Harwell, is starting operational services this summer. The initial user is the European Commission in the frame of the Copernicus Programme.
EDRS is being implemented in a public-private-partnership between ESA and Airbus. Airbus is the service provider in this partnership, and takes this service capability to the global market.
SpaceDataHighway (SDH) is the Airbus branding for the Data Relay Services based on the EDRS infrastructure. The heart of the SDH is its innovative laser communication terminal (LCT), enabling a quantum leap in data rate.
