LASER COMMUNICATION GROUND STATION

PISCES is collaborating with the State of Hawaii and private companies to develop a Laser Communication Ground Station in Hawaii.

In 2013, NASA successfully tested laser communications through space during the Lunar Laser Communications Demonstration with the LADEE (Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer). Laser-based communication systems are now poised to become the new standard for small satellite missions. Transitioning from RF to laser presents the evolutionary equivalent of switching from dial-up to broadband in space.
