Skyloom Global has signed an agreement with Satellogic Inc. (NASDAQ: SATL), a leader in submeter Earth Observation ("EO") data and satellite technology. The agreement details plans to integrate Skyloom's Optical Communications Terminal ("OCT") onto Satellogic satellites.

Utilizing Skyloom's OCT, Satellogic will test new methods of high-resolution EO data delivery through both SkyCompass-1, the geostationary-based (GEO) lasercom network infrastructure Skyloom developed with its partner, Space Compass, and direct downlink to a gateway within view of the low altitude image area, significantly decreasing latency.

As a first step in its commissioning, the Satellogic spacecraft will conduct a low earth orbit (LEO)-to-ground link by handshaking with Skyloom's optical ground station in Broomfield, Colorado ("BOGS"). The Satellogic-Skyloom agreement follows a feasibility study on the ability of Satellogic's Mark-V platform to establish lasercom links.

Together with Space Compass, Skyloom recently conducted the Critical Design Review for the SkyCompass-1 optical communications network infrastructure, including space, ground, user, and network segments, which will begin providing network services in 2025.

Satellogic designs, manufactures, and operates its own constellation of submeter EO satellites. With more than a decade of experience in space, Satellogic has proven technology and a strong track record of delivering satellites to orbit and high-resolution data to customers at the right price point.

It has successfully completed 15 missions to date and aims to reach 200+ satellites in orbit for daily global remaps. Satellogic's preferred rideshare launch partner is SpaceX.
