To improve communication security and effectiveness, Edith Cowan University (ECU), observation data provider QL Space, and University of South Wales (UK) have formed a new collaboration that focuses on free space optics (FSO).

In early 2024, the agreement will see the construction of a satellite ground station close to ECU’s Joondalup campus in Perth’s north to empower FSO. It will eventually be one of numerous stations in the worldwide network built in collaboration with the University of South Wales (USW). 

Using light to send data

FSO, commonly referred to as optical wireless communication or laser communication, uses light to send data across the air without the usage of physical cables or fibre optics. FSO systems transfer modulated data as optical signals using lasers or light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
