SpiderOak Receives SDA Contract to Integrate OrbitSecure in Space Force Networks

Space cybersecurity company SpiderOak announced that it has secured an other transactional authority agreement from the Space Development Agency to study the integration of OrbitSecure into the U.S. Space Force’s Rapid Resilient Command and Control program.

OrbitSecure uses variable-trust mechanisms to facilitate safe data transmissions on infrastructure with different security protocols, SpiderOak said.

The company explained that its offering is designed around the size, weight and power constraints of space.

OrbitSecure underwent testing on a Ball Aerospace prototype payload in July and on the International Space Station in June with an Axiom Space-supplied edge computing device.

The OTA award is connected to Space Force efforts to augment the Satellite Control Network with commercial and allied infrastructure.

In May, the service announced that it would use National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration antennas to address dwindling SCN capacity.

BlueHalo is expected to deliver a phased-array antenna system in 2025 to upgrade the Space Force network.
