SCHOTT® Free Space Optical Communications Links

The Free Space Optical Communications Links incorporate our patented beam pointing, acquisition, and tracking (PAT) technique. The system provides unprecedented PAT bandwidth and resolution at low power and cost. The enormous benefit of this technology is high bandwidth while eliminating heavy, power hungry gimbals.

Operating at speeds from 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps, SCHOTT Laser Com systems have a fast deployment time (mobile setups can be up and running in under 15 minutes) without requiring government permits or right-of-way for installation. Whether for a military unit, enterprise customer or service provider, the SCHOTT Laser Com product provides robust bandwidth needed for any application.

The Free Space Optics Advantages:
  • Ultra High Wireless Bandwidth.
  • Full gigabit interface link, or fiber input/output pairs of single mode1550 nm.
  • Our system does not rely on the data being transmitted to provide its tracking; the system tracks purely on the optical intensity, and not limited to a particular bandwidth or protocol.
  • Standard installation bandwidth: Gigabit Ethernet
