Industry Day on space-based solutions for secure asset management


On 23 November, Frontex is organising its next Industry Days. This time, the event will be dedicated to the use of space-based technologies for secure asset management.

Space capabilities can provide fast, continuous, reliable, and globally available services for situational awareness. Frontex is inviting industry to share the latest technological developments and innovative space-based solutions that could be used for efficient border management.

The upcoming event will be an opportunity to present the latest advancements and innovations in the following areas:

  • Galileo based solutions for positioning with special focus on the usage of Open Service Navigation Message Authentication and Public Regulated Service.

Frontex, together with Member States, ensures safe and well-functioning external borders and Frontex is enhancing the use of innovative technologies at the borders to better handle security issues. In this context, space systems can provide unique solutions, essential to providing a response to a variety of security challenges.

What are Industry Days?

Industry Days are a platform to interact and engage with experts from the European Border and Coast Guard community. The goal is to create a forum where participants can freely discuss the proposed technological innovations.

The Industry Days will be held in an online format which will host engaging presentations and dynamic discussions, alongside an interactive digital exhibition platform. Each participating entity will be granted a 30-minute slot; during this time a presentation, Q&A session, and collaborative discussions will be held.
