Goonhilly has a state-of-the-art deep space antenna with associated network and mission operation centre facilities and is working on replicating these around the world in collaboration with partners. The result will be the world’s first private global deep space communications network, supplementing the capacity offered by the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the European Space Agency (ESA).

Goonhilly are also in the process of establishing a Space AI Institute with High-Performance Computing (HPC) infrastructure to facilitate space related applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML). HPC on demand is rapidly becoming an innovation enabler for academic institutions such as the University of Oxford and start-ups looking to turn ideas into viable businesses.

Mailock provides an additional level of secure email communications allowing Goonhilly to communicate data around the world with its global partners.

Paul Holland, Chief Executive, Beyond Encryption, said: “Goonhilly provides world-beating connectivity, operational solutions and data services. Interestingly, Goonhilly’s datacentre services, AI & ML capabilities are particularly relevant in the Financial Services sector and the companies we work with.”

“With Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) issues becoming increasingly significant, we are also looking forward to understanding their Earth Observation (EO) work to help us, and the businesses we work with. For Mailock to be selected as their chosen digital security solution is a tremendous endorsement for the company.”

Alex Tweed, IT Systems Manager, Goonhilly Earth Station, said: “In order to implement the best possible data protection practices for our own business and our global partners, it is vital we utilise the highest standard of encryption, and identity verification, to protect our partners against intervention, interception and cybercrime. Beyond Encryption’s Mailock met our standards and requirements, and we look forward to working closely with them in the future.”
