The deliberation issues of this article are focusing on the satellite constellations as the governmental and military technological requirements responding to the current space communication trends

For the purposes of this research, the following theoretical research methods were applied: analysis, synthesis, abstraction, generalisation and inference.

Paper reveals a brief description of the satcom evolution, as well as, the market analysis of current and emerging trends which clearly indicate that the small satellites and their constellations are presumed to remain the largest and the fastest growing segment both for the structured institutions of European Members in the governmental and military area. 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.

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. There shall be taken into consideration the solution of bilateral cooperation of EU institutions and non- structured EU entities under the common agenda of European investment in the space technologies and science as the resilient structure to strengthen European Continent as the global actor and expert in the government and military requirements of the current satcom trends
