Things are only impossible until they are not
Space Lasers & Planetary-Scale Networks

We’re enabling the next big step in global connectivity.

By the end of this decade, millions of Terabits/years of data will need to be transmitted to space and back to Earth.

Skyloom is a telecommunications company founded with the mission to develop, deploy, and operate one of the fundamental pieces of tomorrow's digital infrastructure to provide data transport services on a planetary scale.

We design, build, and lay the space-based equivalent of towers (satellites), fiber (lasercom), routers, and switches, enabling fiberless orbital networks to offer high-capacity data plans.

Space-Based IP Transit
Welcome to the Connected Future

We are on the brink of becoming a true planetary society.

Our generation will connect the whole world and carefully monitor the planet’s resources by employing thousands of orbiting satellites.

Satellite sensor data is following Moore’s Law resulting in an exponential increase in data production, which combined with the record number of satellites being deployed leads to an inevitable data transfer bottleneck.

Satellite backhaul will significantly improve worldwide connectivity allowing cellular providers and ISPs to connect gateways and users all over the planet by creating orbital mesh networks to relay traffic globally.

Lasercom provides unlicensed, unregulated, faster, and more secure connectivity and has been recognized as one of the most critical technologies to unlocking the true economic potential of space-based infrastructure.

We Provide
High-Performance Equipment
    Cost-Effective Comms Satellites
      High-Capacity Backhaul Services
        How We Do It
        We Flew Because We Discovered We Had To

        We are once again re-imagining what connection means in the digital age and we have the extraordinary opportunity to make a difference. The internet is being reborn again.

        Technological breakthroughs are often a pursuit of the community.  Mutual trust allows us to keep going, keep pushing, and continuously strive for improvement. The connections we forge with one another, with our subcontractors, partners, and customers are the foundation upon which we are building the future.

        Skyloom is a platform for human creativity, ingenuity, and innovation. Our team of high-performance engineers has come together to accomplish wonders. With a strong sense of purpose, focus, urgency, and willingness to compete, our team is enchanted by the romantic nature of space endeavors and captivated by the potential we see in the stars.

        Space technology is entering its industrialization phase; craftsmen are being replaced by assembly lines to achieve production volumes in the tens of thousands.

        All services and products are engineered and constructed in-house. Vertical integration and a quick rollout of comms technology, equipment, and infrastructure are at the core of our strategy to maintain cost, schedule, quality, and performance and deliver on our promise of becoming a true planetary society.

        The Internet Expansion Into Space

        To date, fiber optic technology has been the foundation of how we communicate and transmit information around the world. Since its meteoric rise and wide-spread adoption, fiber optics has transformed our world in myriad ways.

        The technology, however, has remained largely unchanged since 1996 when we first laid fiber optic cable in the Pacific Ocean that gave way to the internet, as we know it.

        Until today.

        We are once again on the brink of a revolution in internet infrastructure. The age of free space (fiberless) laser communication has finally arrived.

        With our commercial and government partners, we’ve tested and are deploying industry leading intersatellite lasercom links. These are the primary components of the larger lasercom infrastructure we’re building in space that will bring high speed internet services to every single square foot of the planet.

        This is true global coverage and connectivity.

        LEO → LEO

        Constellations of smaller satellites are replacing the exquisite satellites of the past. Our inter-satellite lasercom terminals connect satellite constellations in Low-Earth Orbit (LEO) creating a mesh network to provide truly ubiquitous connectivity.

        Learn more about our technology, our orbital infrastructure, and the solutions we unlock including solving the data-transfer problem for the EO market.
