So Small, It’s Mobile

Good things come in small packages. So things are getting smaller these days. Mobile phones have shrunk from the size of house bricks to be truly handheld computers that fit in suit pockets. Computers used to take up an entire room but now sit comfortably on your lap. And satellites, too, are shrinking in the same way. No longer are they huge constructions of several metric tons that need a dedicated rocket launch to get into orbit. Nowadays, satellites are getting small. Smallsats, in fact. Or microsats only 10cm3 in size and weighing no more than 1.5 kg.

To match the reduction in size of satellite technology, and to best suit the needs of constellation builders in the stratosphere who are using super-light drones and balloons, we too focus on miniaturization with laser terminals that fit all airborne and spaceborne uses and ground stations capable of being transported and used wherever they are needed.

Small. Smaller. Lasercom.

All of Mynaric’s products are developed with their application in mind, so our terminals are carefully crafted to fit the restrictive low size, weight, and power consumption (SWaP) constraints of airborne and space scenarios and our ground stations are designed to meet the challenge of being mobile enough to serve their exacting terrestrial applications.
