Satellite communication

Satellites transmit information to earth via laser signals. With over 30 researchers we work on this technology.

Laser satellite communication

There is a growing demand for more data, due to, among other things, the advent of self-driving cars, social media with more videos, and the ‘Internet of Things’. The existing connections cannot meet that demand. Laser satellite communication offers a solution.
