Paris, 21 May 2021. – The ‘fiber-in-the-sky” pioneer Mynaric will use its Optical Inter-Satellite Links (OISLs) to connect Cloud Constellation’s SpaceBelt LEO satellites, the company announced.

Cloud Constellation is developing a LEO constellation known as SpaceBelt to provide data security services, cloud storage and management services, leveraging its laser communications technology to move data securely between satellites, Mynaric said.

OISLs are a requirement for high-speed, reliable communications to transfer cloud-stored data in space to anywhere on the globe, the Frankfurt stock exchange listed laser pioneer said.

In the first phase of the partnership, Mynaric will deliver all OISL terminals required for the first ten satellites of the SpaceBelt constellation, the company said, naming LeoStella as “its selected prime of choice”.
