ViaLight offers laser communication solutions allowing high data rate and long distance wireless data transmission between moving objects for terrestrial, airborne and space applications. Laser communication can be thought of as the optical fiber for the skies and ViaLight’s products provide backbone connectivity to link aircraft, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), high altitude platforms (HAPs), satellites and their respective ground stations. They are designed to meet the demanding conditions of aerial and space applications and offer world class performance in terms of data rate, power consumption, size and weight.
ViaLight was founded in 2009 as a spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and is proud on its extensive experience of more than 15 years with laser communications and its carefully resourced international team of talented professionals. At ViaLight we envision a future where high data rate connectivity in the skies and beyond is as natural as on the ground and our products are an enabler for this vision.
