Airbus Defence and Space starts the initial service of its SpaceDataHighway. This represents a step change in the speed of space communications.
Ultra-broadband laser communications and the geostationary orbit of the relay satellites will make data latency a thing of the past.
Through laser communication, the SpaceDataHighway can transfer high-volume data from Earth observation satellites, airborne platforms, or even from the International Space Station at a data rate of 1.8 Gbps and can transmit up to 40 terabytes per day.
Be ready to enter the SpaceDataHighway the 28th of November 2016
