The proliferation of the technology has made keeping a lid on it impossible.

It went very dark when Northrop started to look at it for the LRS-B and P-ISR back in 2005/6 time. Now? It will be globally available.


In October 2021, Mynaric and H3 HATS, a subsidiary of H3 Aerospace specializing in high-altitude platforms, announced the successful start of a joint demonstration campaign to showcase laser comms capabilities for high-altitude long endurance aircraft using industrialized terminals.

The campaign utilized a setup of two Mynaric-manufactured HAWK products — on the ground and mounted in the fuselage payload bay of a Grob G 520NG aircraft — to demonstrate air-to-ground links. The campaign demonstrated stable bidirectional laser links with speeds of 10 Gbps between the aircraft and the ground terminal during various flight patterns.

“The biggest takeaway so far was the successful demonstration of the world’s first industrialized optical communications terminals for airborne applications,” says Altan. “Previous demonstrations relied on one-off prototypes or technology demonstrators.

In last year’s demonstrations, our commercially available HAWK pre-series products reliably performed as expected and demonstrated stable bidirectional and high-speed optical links in air-to-ground scenarios. These demonstrations pave the way for the operational deployment of laser communications systems to eventually becoming integral to airborne and mobility networks.”
