European MS coming together for SST: the EU SST Governance

The EUSST Support Framework is implemented by the SST Consortium which represents a first-time European civil-military model that can be used as blueprint for other international programmes. The Consortium consists of five EU Member States who are represented through their national entities France (CNES), Germany (DLR), Italy (ASI), Spain (CDTI), and United Kingdom (UKSA).  As of end of 2018, a new Consortium Agreement and Implementing Arrangement are being negotiated with additional EU Member States (Poland, Portugal, Romania).

Its work is governed by the Consortium Agreement signed in June 2015 and involves three decision-making bodies that oversee project implementation – the Steering Committee for high-level decisions and liaison with the European Commission; the Technical Committee for analyses and studies; and the Security Committee for data policy issues.

To facilitate service provision, the Consortium and EU SatCen form the so-called SST Cooperation. Its work is governed by the Implementing Arrangement signed in September 2015 and SST Cooperation matters are discussed in the Coordination Committee.
