Laser communications: Empowering more data than ever before

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space

Launching this summer, NASA’s Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD) will showcase the dynamic powers of laser communications technologies. With NASA’s ever-increasing human and robotic presence in space, missions can benefit from a new way of “talking” with Earth.

Since the beginning of spaceflight in the 1950s, NASA missions have leveraged to send data to and from space. Laser communications, also known as optical communications, will further empower missions with unprecedented data capabilities.
