Scenarios

Laser communication can be used in a series of scenarios that require high data rate point-to-point connections and abundant connectivity. ViaLight’s capabilities include laser links to and from airplanes and other vehicles in the regular airspace, stratospheric high altitude platforms such as balloons or UAVs, satellites in low Earth orbit (LEO) as well as ground stations. Laser communication can help your application with

  • High data rate point-to-point connections with up to 10 Gbps
  • Long distance communication in air
  • Ultra low size, weight and power consumption (SWaP) payload
  • Unregulated use, no need for allocated ITU/FCC spectrum
  • Complete stealth connection practically impossible to tap, jam or spoof
  • Lowest possible latency solutions up to 30% shorter than for optical fibers
