This institution performs the solution for innovative R&D projects and in more independent perspective acts with the business domain or administrative diplomatic efforts to create the balanced synergy in undertaken projects for worldwide security factor. A short, non-technical description of a set of general requirements of civ-mil users for the satcom is also presented in this paper. Conclusions: The research results presented in the analysed studies are useful for providing the worldwide standards of security and order in spite of developing technologies and competitiveness in faster data processing of outer space technology requirements.
