Space-Generated Data On Demand
THE FUTURE OF SPACE COMMUNICATIONS IS HERE
Kepler’s Optical Service provides the communication infrastructure for the next generation of optically equipped satellites by providing an on-demand high bandwidth connection to the ground for real-time access to data-intensive applications. Kepler’s optical service provides a 2.5 Gbps class optical relay network in LEO to enable SDA-compatible terminals access to the ground 24/7. This enables real-time, on-demand, high-speed access to space-generated data for both commercial and government applications.
Our optical service can be scheduled in advance or accessed on demand via the Kepler S-band service, enabling true real-time tasking in addition to data downlink or edge computing.
Today, satellites, spacecraft, and other space-borne assets generate more data in space than they can downlink back to earth. We are building an optical constellation to eliminate communication blackouts and backlogs, increasing the amount of data on-orbit missions can bring back to earth. With Kepler’s Optical Service, space missions will have the infrastructure needed to keep up with the current and future demands of the growing space economy, ensuring critical mission data is available to operators when they need it the most.
HOW IT WORKS
LAUNCH YOUR MISSION
The Kepler Network’s satellites are equipped with SDA compatible laser terminals.
REQUEST A CONNECTION
Satellites in LEO can request a connection using Kepler S–band or from the ground.
REAL-TIME, ALWAYS ON DATA
Our AETHER constellation routes mission data to the earth using a combination of optical and radio links
