Bring Your Data Home

Skyloom is deploying an optical data transport network in space.

We leverage small geostationary relay nodes to provide low-latency and high-capacity data transportation services for LEO constellations and beyond.

Our optical-based relay systems will be the backbone of a planetary-wide network that solves the data transfer bottleneck for the Earth Observation market and many others.

Light is the information vehicle of the future.

Benefits of laser-based communication systems

Higher capacity

10X to 100X more data transmitted back to Earth than current radio frequency (RF) systems.

Super Efficient

Smaller size, weight, and power requirements than RF.

More secure

RF signals are susceptible to interference and intercept.

How it works


Optical Inter-Satellite Link
Constellations of smaller satellites are replacing many of the “exquisite” satellites of the past. Our optical communications terminals (OCTs) enable high bandwidth connections from LEO-LEO and LEO-Ground to LEO-Airborne and LEO-Maritime. Our V’ger OCT product line is a space-based, SDA-compliant multi-Gbps class autonomous lasercom terminal. This LEO link supports the architecture for providing planetary-scale backhaul and network services.

  • Modular design
  • 1-10 Gbps
  • LEO-Ground
  • LEO-Airborne
  • LEO-Maritime

Optical Inter-Satellite Link
Scotty is the user terminal for LEO satellites accessing Skyloom's network. It enables multi-Gbps data transfer from LEO to on-the-cloud by connecting LEO assets with our GEO node. Satellites in LEO orbit the earth in less than two hours, which means that a satellite is in view of a given point on earth for only a few minutes, severely limiting the opportunity to offload data. Rather than depend on these short windows to communicate directly with ground, our OCTs connect satellites in LEO to our high-capacity, multi-user optical relay satellites in geostationary orbit (GEO). LEO user satellites carrying Scotty OCTs are scheduled to communicate with the Skyloom network without the need of Ground-LEO links.

  • Enables access to Skyloom’s network via GEO
  • Supports LEO-GEO links up to 20 Gbps
  • Hemispherical Field Of Regard
  • Autonomous acquisition and tracking
  • Interoperable with SDA OCT Standard

Uhura is Skyloom’s geostationary optical relay satellite for GEO-LEO and GEO-Ground data transfer, enabling real-time, super low latency data transmission. Designed and built by Skyloom, our small, high-capacity, multi-user optical relay satellites in geostationary orbit perfectly match the speed of Earth’s rotation, enabling always-on connection to our ground station. Because every link in the chain is optical, we break the traditional paradigm of GEO-induced latency.

  • Speed to orbit in GEO: 5 days
  • Fully regenerative comms
  • Gimbaled optical heads for data relay from LEO/MEO to ground
  • RF backup downlink guarantees > 99% link availability from space to ground
  • 20 Gbps, LEO - GEO OCT (1550 nm)
  • 20 Gbps, GEO - Ground OCT (1550 nm)
  • First node planned for Asia Pacific coverage in Q4 2024

Bring your data home to Skyloom’s optical ground station (OGS). Our small, versatile OGS can be installed at low-cost at a traditional ground station, directly co-located with existing/planned data centers, or tactically deployed on short notice.

  • Optical aperture <1m with adaptive optics
  • RF antenna for downlink and TT&C as required
