Program for the Digital Resilience Validation of Emerging Technologies for Contingency or Wartime Applications

Considering the significant benefits of Non-Geostationary Satellite Orbits (NGSO) in supporting communication networks during the Ukraine-Russia War, the moda is currently promoting the “Program for the Digital Resilience Validation of Emerging Technologies for Contingency or Wartime Applications” to verify the feasibility of NGSO as an emergency backup communication network. Ensure that the government command system maintains essential and safe communication in emergencies.

The plan will prioritize the deployment of NGSO equipment in outlying islands, remote villages, and areas without heterogeneous communication backup. By the end of 2024, 700 domestic NGSO satellite terminal equipment sites (hot spots), 70 cellular base station satellite backhaul sites, and 3 international NGSO satellite terminal equipment sites, encompassing 773 locations.

Since diversity and heterogeneity are the best practices for resilience, the moda does not impose restrictions favoring a single satellite operator. As long as satellite system operators have no Chinese ownership, do not employ Chinese-branded equipment, and comply with relevant national security and cybersecurity regulations, the moda encourages executing units to assess the possibility of cooperation with global satellite operators and explore the potential for complementary usage. We aim to strengthen communication resilience in this initiative by deploying diverse technologies and heterogeneous solutions.

Furthermore, Taiping Island is a priority location for this verification project. Assuming that relevant authorities express the need to enhance mobile communication capabilities on the island, the Ministry is willing to cooperate in deploying asynchronous satellite communication equipment as a backhaul link, thereby increasing mobile communication bandwidth and capacity.
