The Stellar Project LaserCube is a 2-way laser communication terminal enabling downlink and intersatellite link through optical channels for small satellites.
The optical communication solutions are designed to have higher performance than the state-of-the-art radiofrequency solutions and do not have any regulatory restrictions or licensing issues.
LaserCube is designed to act as a crucial building block of future assets of commercial space and has an enhanced security as laser links cannot be intercept/jammed.
- Earth Imagery
- Weather forecasting
- Global telecommunications internet services
- Internet of things (IoT)
- Machine-to-machine (M2M)
- 2U CubeSat size (100x100x200 mm^3, 2kg)
- Suitable for 3U CubeSats and microsatellites
- Two configurations:
- Intersatellite link (up to two full duplex optical channels)
- Downlink (1 TX optical channel)
- Dedicated coarse pointing system with ± 10 deg elevation/azimuth pointing range and 10 μrad pointing accuracy (patent by Stellar Project):
- Precise pointing of optical unit by ADCS is not required
- Opertaional flexibilty for the platform
- Telecom performance: >10 times state of the art RF technologies (1-2 Gbps downlink)
- Enhanced security: laser links immune to interception or jamming
- No regulation restrictions for frequency bands allocation
Product customization available from idea to orbit.
The system has achieved flight heritage with LaserCube-Downlink launched in space for its maiden flight on June 30th, 2021.
