Optical Ground Station: GS-200


Mynaric’s ground station GS-200 is a free-space optical communication terminal for terrestrial applications. It is used for bidirectional data communication and when paired with our MLT-70 air-to-ground terminal, it provides a complete 10 Gbps link to any aircraft or stratospheric platform.

This compact system is based on an innovative pointing mechanism, with low power consumption and heat dissipation. Furthermore, it is optimized to support both fixed and mobile communication links.

  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet IEEE 802.3-compatible
  • Offers hemispherical Field of Regard
  • Forward error correction
  • Portable
  • Simple power adapter

Link Scenarios


Mynaric’s optical ground station GS-200 is designed to offer high-speed access points for air-to-ground communication scenarios. It is typically used for bidirectional data links to and from aircraft operating in standard civil aviation aerospace and unmanned aerial vehicles – be they drones or balloons – operating in the stratosphere. The compact size of the ground station also supports mobile communication links, with its robust design allowing for operation under harsh environmental conditions such as rain, strong wind, and wide temperature variations.

Optical Ground Station: GS-400


Mynaric’s ground station GS-400 is a free space optical communication terminal for airborne and spaceborne applications. It is used for bidirectional data communication providing a complete 10 Gbps link to any airborne or space platform.

This compact system is based on an innovative pointing mechanism, with low power consumption and heat dissipation and is optimized to support both fixed and mobile communication links.

Link Scenarios


Mynaric’s optical ground station GS-400 is designed to offer high-speed access points to terrestrial network infrastructure for space-to-ground communication scenarios. It is typically used for bidirectional data links to and from satellites operating as interlinked constellations or for downstreaming data from Earth observation satellites. The widest link availability is guaranteed by ground station diversity schemes that utilize multiple optical ground stations at different locations. The locations for the ground stations are selected so that their aggregate availability – the availability of at least any one ground station – is statistically maximized by using historical weather data. Depending on ground station locations, and the number of ground stations, up to 100% availability can be achieved.
