Setting up a modern “Satellite Communications Spectrum Monitoring System (SEFD/ΣΕΦΔ)”


Paris, France, and Vienna, Austria, – January 25, 2024 – Eviden, the Atos Group business leading in digital, cloud, big data and security, today announces its collaboration with The Hellenic Telecommunications and Post commission (EETT), the National Regulatory Authority (NRA) in matters of provision of services and networks for electronic communications, related facilities and services, and postal services. EETT has selected, through an Open International tender co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund and National Resources, Eviden’s cutting-edge SkyMon solution for the establishment of a pioneering Satellite Monitoring Station, named “EOS/ΗΩΣ” after the Greek Mythological deity-personification of the dawn, dedicated to monitoring the frequency spectrum used in satellite communications. The price of the contract amounts to € 5,667,098.15 including VAT.

EETT, as the Independent Administrative Authority of Greece, seeks to better exercise its responsibilities on satellite spectrum issues, for the benefit of the business and research environment as well as to cultivate innovation in the field of electronic communications based on satellite broadband networks. Thus, SEFD will contribute to the economic development and the drawing up of the country’s space policy, while ensuring the national interests.

The contract encompasses the establishment of a fixed monitoring station specifically tailored for the frequency spectrum used in satellite communications. This station will comprise reflector type antennas, an RF system linking antennas with measuring equipment, a transmitter geolocation system, cutting-edge hardware and software for data recording, processing, storage, and visualization, a comprehensive monitoring and control system, and an independent power supply. Additionally, it includes station commissioning, personnel training, and ongoing support and maintenance services over a five-year period, along with a two-year Good Operation Guarantee period.

Eviden’s SkyMon SATCOM monitoring solution stands as the cornerstone of this collaboration. It offers a sophisticated, automated radio frequency traffic monitoring system, empowering operators with comprehensive tools to continuously monitor satellite to ground station links from a centralized hub. Furthermore, the data evaluation stemming from the Satellite Monitoring Station’s operations will augment EETT’s consulting capabilities across various sectors of the national economy. This will support other relevant government bodies in policy formulation and the implementation of strategic initiatives.

“With this new collaboration with EETT we are consolidating our position of leader in the satellite monitoring. With SkyMon we are providing a state-of-the-art digital solution using proven and advanced AI and Cloud solutions.” said Bruno Milard, VP, Head of Aerospace & Defense Electronics, Eviden, Atos Group.
