In order to achieve this target, the EU Commission has selected a consortium of small and medium-sized enterprises with the task of preparing a detailed technical concept for an independent European satellite network. The consortium consisting of about 20 medium-sized European aviation firms and startups is being funded by the European Commission for a period of six months with € 1.4 million. The Viennese startup Quantum Technology Laboratories is responsible for the quantum cryptography.

With its "Digital Europe" infrastructure programme, the EU wants to improve the outmoded European infrastructure, explained co-founder Rupert Ursin, who published numerous works in the fields of quantum communications, networks and cryptography at the Austrian Academy of Sciences and became one of the founders of the company Quantum Technology Laboratories in the year 2020. Accordingly, Europe should have its own satellite-supported communications infrastructure by 2025, ensuring that the EU will be able to secure its sovereignty, for example with respect to more rapid Internet, autonomous mobility and the automatic exchange of information between technical facilities. The consortium is already preparing the start of its first satellite demonstrator in 2023.
