High bandwidth, long-distance ground to ground free space optics

Aircision, a spin-off of the Space and Scientific Instrumentation Group develops space optics systems for the backhaul of telecommunications networks.

Aircision’s collaboration with the Space and Instrumentation group began in September 2020. Leveraging technologies developed over the last decade for satellite communication, TNO and Aircision aim to test the limits of ground to ground free space optics. By combining forces, we aim to eventually deliver over 100Gbps up to 10km to connect the unconnected in rural and remote areas.
