The world’s first integration of a Light Fidelity (LiFi) module onto a nanosatellite marks a new era for LiFi technology, HomeGrid Forum said today.
Speaking after the successful launch of the INSPIRE SAT-7 nanosatellite by SpaceX earlier this month in California, HomeGrid Forum President Livia Rosu discussed how the implementation of the SatelLife® module – developed by Oledcomm and LATMOS (Laboratoire Atmosphères, Observations Spatiales) of France – showcases the benefits LiFi technology can bring to aerospace operations.
“We would like to congratulate HomeGrid Forum member Oledcomm on its major breakthrough in intra-satellite communications and for the first launch of LiFi G.hn into space,” said Rosu. “Through the use of the SatelLife® LiFi module, space missions will now benefit from ultra-secure wireless connections and ultra-light weight. This marks the next stage of evolution for this technology, and we’re excited to see the aerospace industry utilize it for their own operations.”
