Inter-Satellite Link Terminal: MLT-80

Mynaric’s inter-satellite link terminal MLT-80 is a free-space optical communication terminal for inter-satellite links in low-Earth orbit (LEO).

Having a low mass, low power consumption, and a competitive price it is tailored for the stringent requirements of LEO constellations.

  • 10 Gigabit Ethernet IEEE 802.3-compatible
  • 5-7 years lifetime at LEO polar orbit
  • Designed for backbone inter-satellite links of LEO constellations
  • High volume production available from 2019

Link Scenarios

Mynaric’s space terminals are designed to interconnect individual satellites as well as entire constellations of hundreds, or even thousands, of satellites in low Earth orbit. They are capable of providing ultra-high broadband links to and from the ground and they are a key element in large scale and global connectivity concepts, such as LEO satellite constellations delivering internet access on the ground and Earth observation satellites which need to be able to downstream more data in less time at a fraction of the cost.
