Space data backbone gets U.S. approval
Soon we may have a space-based optical backbone capable of transferring data 1.5 times faster than Earth-based terrestrial fiber, now that the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has given LeoSat the go-ahead to start its build-out. Moving “large quantities of data quickly and securely around the world, is fast outpacing the infrastructure in place to carry it,” says LeoSat in a press releaseannouncing its FCC market-access grant last month. Upcoming LeoSat, will be a “a backbone in space for global business,” the company says. It, along with SpaceX, Kepler and Telesat, requested permission the FCC to roll out non-geostationary satellite orbit (NGSO) satellite constellations. All four organizations were given approval (pdf) in November.
