BridgeComm, Cailabs to Propose Joint Offerings

BridgeComm, Inc., a provider of optical wireless communications (OWC) solutions and services, has announced a partnership with Cailabs, a French deeptech company and global provider of light beam shaping, the company said.

Their shared intent is to propose joint offerings that will integrate solutions from both enterprises into systems that will significantly improve laser communications between space, airborne and terrestrial OWC solutions.

BridgeComm develops secure optical communications networks that are faster and more economical by offering a turnkey solution designed to transmit large volumes of data from space and airborne platforms. This capability will directly respond to the increasing demands and evolving needs of data transmission processes.

Cailabs, thanks to its patented Multi-Plane Light Conversion (MPLC) light beam shaping technology, improves the reliability, range and robustness of laser communications in turbulent atmospheric environments and when operating with vibrations (i.e. ISL). Cailabs´ dedicated product range, named Tilba, is compatible with standard telecommunications systems and can be ported in airborne environments.

After meeting in 2018, the two companies identified different collaboration areas aimed at improving optical communication architectures.

Founded in 2013, Cailabs is a French deep tech company which designs, manufactures and distributes innovative photonic products for telecommunications, free space transmission, industrial lasers, and LANs. Additional information about Cailabs is accessible at
