BIG DATA DELIVERED
Space-based optical communication systems are poised to take a breakthrough role in commercial SmallSat missions. Backed by successful on-orbit demonstrations, and led by new technology developments, the migration to optical communications from traditional radio frequency (RF) designs will provide a significant leap in the data downlink capabilities of low Earth orbit (LEO) small satellites.
Providing an Optical Communications Turnkey Solution
BridgeSat’s mission is to speed the adoption of optical communications systems by providing operators with a full turnkey solution that seamlessly connects satellites and high-altitude unmanned vehicles to the ground, and accommodates accelerating demand for accurate and frequent data collection from LEO satellites. Designed to either augment existing RF systems or provide a primary downlink channel, BridgeSat’s solution includes mission analysis, upfront design work, delivery and integration of space terminals, and access to a ground network that provides delivery of the operator’s data directly from their satellite or UAV to their server.
GREATER BANDWIDTH. REDUCED LATENCY.
BridgeSat is working with leading laser communications terminal suppliers to provide a range of design options to meet all requirements.
GLOBAL GROUND STATION NETWORK
Ground station site diversity is essential for optical communications to be a viable operational system. BridgeSat is establishing a worldwide network of stations for spacecraft operators to use, regardless of which space optical terminal is transmitting data from your satellite. BridgeSat offers access to this optical comm network on a price per delivered bit basis. The operator only pays once the data is securely delivered from their satellite to their data center.
