    • ViaLight Communications develops and manufactures innovative high-rate laser communication systems (>1Gbps) for aerial applications. Our new MLT-20 is an extremely compact flight terminal (5-10kg) for smaller UAV and helicopter platforms. The MLT-100, meanwhile, is capable of transmitting large data volumes between high-flying airship platforms and aircraft over distances of up to 600 kilometres, which aids in assembling networks above the clouds. Our target market consists of customers who need to transmit extremely large data volumes in real time from their flight platforms – a feat impossible with conventional radio communication systems.ViaLight Communications is based on a close cooperation with the German Aerospace Center, which has performed research on this technology for already 20 years.
