Mynaric: Laser-Communication as Compensation for Glass Fibre

ESA BIC Bavaria alumnus Mynaric provides laser communication technologies to enable future aerospace communication networks. With optical transmission by laser, data can be transmitted more rapidly into space and terrestrial data communication could become cheaper. The volume of the optical laser data transmission achieves 1.7 terabits per second. Besides the acceleration of the data transmission to satellites and aircraft, the communication via fibre optic cable should be replaced by the technology of Mynaric in the medium term.

The spin-off of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) is a manufacturer of laser communication technologies which are used to establish dynamic communication networks in air and space. Its wireless laser communication products include ground stations and flight terminals.  They allow high data rates to be sent wirelessly over long distances between aircraft, drones/UAVs, high altitude platforms, satellites and the ground, in order to connect the unconnected and provide broadband access in areas where existing coverage is low to non-existent.

Do you want to become a high flyer just like Mynaric? Then join the ESA BIC Bavaria family now.

The ESA BIC Bavaria seeks entrepreneurs using space technologies in a non-space environment. That does not mean rocket science, but applies to multiple application fields such as navigation and positioning, communications techniques, Earth observation, materials, processes, signals or robotics.

Are you interested in joining our network and do you have an innovative idea yourself? Then have a look at the details of the ESA BIC Bavaria programme. ESA BIC Bavaria has four selection rounds each year. The next application deadline for the incubation programme is 02 March 2018. Apply now for ESA BIC Bavaria
