Eviden selected by GMV for Hisdesat satellite monitoring center


Eviden’s SkyMon solution to monitor Spanish government satellites

Paris, France and Madrid, Spain – June 15, 2023 – Eviden, the Atos business leading in security, today announces that GMV, leading provider of satellite control centers, has selected Eviden’s SkyMon solution for the new center being set up by Hisdesat, the Spanish Government satellite operator. SkyMon will monitor next-generation satellites from the “Spainsat NG” program, the most advanced satellites in Europe for defense and secure communications.


Eviden’s SkyMon solution will continually monitor the digital spectrum onboard of the satellites and on the ground to detect any deviation from the planned traffic in one single and intuitive solution, to take counteractive measures immediately.

The solution will support the new technology used in next-generation very high throughput satellites, “Digital Transparent Processor” (DTP)1. DTP provides high dynamic channelization and transparent routing capabilities for advanced space telecommunication applications, which require a high performant real-time monitoring system.

By incorporating next-generation payload with DTP, Spainsat NG will increase the capacity of satellites and maximize the use of the resources in an efficient and flexible way. This approach requires the Carrier Monitoring Solution to interact permanently with the satellite and to use it as a remote monitoring site. SkyMon, with its cloud-based state-of-the-art microservice architecture, allows implementing such capability on a very robust and scalable basis.

“Eviden’s SkyMon solution has a proven track record in the market, and we are delighted to be working with GMV to bring our expertise and technologies to support the Spanish government’s satellites.” said Bruno Milard, VP, Head of Aerospace & Defense Electronics, Eviden, Atos Group.

“Satellite monitoring is a demanding field, and we need leading-edge partners to work with us. We are very pleased to benefit from Eviden’s experience and to leverage our synergies.” said Enrique Fraga, General Manager of GMV´s Space Systems EST.
