Remote Eye Concept for Sensing and Surveillance

Laser communications allows real time access to high-definition remote sensing and surveillance activities with 100% link security and privacy

Scenario

Today, enormous amounts of data are generated for governmental agencies, scientific purposes and commercial applications from all kinds of airborne vehicles such as UAVs, airplanes, helicopters and many more. Often, high-definition video streams of current events or other time critical data must be transmitted in real time to a base station that is not in direct proximity of the vehicle acquiring the data. Laser communication allows to establish a 100% secure and private (no tapping, jamming or spoofing) airborne long distance relay link that connects remote surveillance or measurement missions with ultra high data rates and bridge several hundred kilometers of link distance.
