HySpecIQ Chooses BridgeComm as Communications Partner

BridgeComm, Inc., a provider of optical wireless communications (OWC) solutions and services, has announced that it was selected as the OWC solution provider for HySpecIQ´s new low earth orbit (LEO) constellation, the company said.

These advanced satellites will provide high-resolution hyperspectral imaging that–when combined with HySpecIQ´s advanced analytics platform–will serve vital needs in myriad market verticals, including environmental intelligence, national security, natural resources, agriculture, insurance, and risk management.

BridgeComm has quickly garnered attention as the first organization to commercialize OWC and begin development of a global network of optical ground stations designed to support complementary fixed and mobile terminals that provide high-bandwidth, high-security solutions for unique applications.

A wireless technology offering rapid point-to-point data transmission via beams of light that connect from one telescope to another using low-power, safe, infrared lasers in the terahertz spectrum, OWC holds tremendous potential to augment RF, fiber and mmWave technologies and extend the capabilities of the terrestrial fiber grid–particularly in hard-to-access environments and in areas where cell towers do not currently exist.

HySpecIQ designs sensors and satellites that collect hyperspectral data as well as an advanced analytics platform to make sense of that data. HySpecIQ´s ethos is rooted in science and big data, satellite technology and signature libraries. Learn more at https://www.hyspeciq.com.
