Finding new ways to get you more data

ATLAS has partnered with Laser Light Communications and Xenesis to form the Empower Space Alliance, which will begin offering globally accessible optical communications in 2021.

By fully integrating into the Laser Light Communications “HALO” free space optical constellation,  ATLAS will be adding ultra-high speed, high capacity communications services to our network. The HALO network is 100% optical, with hundreds of ground nodes setup near major metropolitan areas around the globe.

This will provide our future customers with access to an inexpensive optical communications payload in order to access the high data rate, low latency capabilities afforded by the HALO constellation. At downlink speeds of 10 Gbps, ATLAS customers equipped with a free space optical communications payload will be able to downlink petabytes of data per day.
