Skyloom and Satellogic sign agreement for multipath Optical Comms data transmission

Satellogic announced that it has signed an agreement with Skyloom detailing plans to integrate Skyloom’s Optical Communications Terminal (“OCT”) onto Satellogic satellites.

Utilizing Skyloom’s OCT, Satellogic will test new methods of high-resolution EO data delivery through both SkyCompass-1, the geostationary-based (GEO) lasercom network infrastructure Skyloom developed with its partner, Space Compass, and direct downlink to a gateway within view of the low altitude image area, significantly decreasing latency.

As a first step in its commissioning, the Satellogic spacecraft will conduct a low earth orbit (LEO)-to-ground link by handshaking with Skyloom’s optical ground station in Broomfield, Colorado (“BOGS”). The Satellogic-Skyloom agreement follows a feasibility study on the ability of Satellogic’s Mark-V platform to establish lasercom links.

Together with Space Compass, Skyloom recently conducted the Critical Design Review for the SkyCompass-1 optical communications network infrastructure, including space, ground, user, and network segments, which will begin providing network services in 2025.
