The pair of Stack Exchange questions linked below are almost four years old. I still don't exactly understand how this will work, but here I'd like to ask if this company is still around and if it plans to offer a worldwide optical link to satellites, and if so, which satellites?
- Space SE: All Optical Global Network - how does the space-to-ground link avoid clouds? Currently unanswered.
- Aviation SE: Who must approve a globally distributed satellite to ground laser communication system? Currently unanswered, just added a bounty
- Earthscience SE: Have these optical satellite ground station locations been chosen for clear skies? Nicely answered.
