London, 6 December 2023.- LeoLabs, a commercial provider of Space Traffic Management (STM) and Space Situational Awareness (SSA), announced on the 4th of December that it signed a partnership agreement with Aalyria, the software-defined and optical networking communications company. 

LeoLabs and Aalyria aim to combine their expertise and technologies to address space awareness challenges for complex communications networks. Aalyria will integrate LeoLab’s growing commercially owned orbital database into Spacetime, Aalyria’s software platform for organising networks of ground stations, aircraft, satellites, ships and urban meshes. 

Aalyria will be able to model the locations of objects in low Earth orbit (LEO) for mission planning and operations purposes. This intends to allow customers to maintain and secure their communications networks which might experience interference from other objects on-orbit.

“Communications infrastructure is critical to our daily lives and increasingly linked across multiple domains, including space,” said Dan Ceperley, LeoLabs Chief Executive Officer. “That’s why we’re proud to partner with Aalyria and address the challenges faced by both commercial and government-owned communications networks. By layering our space safety services with Aalyria’s network orchestration solutions, we hope to ensure that the growing hybrid communication networks are secured in today’s complex, crowded, and contentious space domain.”

Operators will have a single point of access for real-time information and analysis for critical decision-making by layering LeoLabs’ operational safety data and services on Aalyria existing network solutions. The partnership will serve the need for interoperability with legacy, hybrid space, 5G NTN, and FutureG network architectures.
