MOCA technology improves the efficacy and affordability of lasercomm systems with point-to-multipoint capabilities
September 22, 2020 09:42 AM Eastern Daylight Time DENVER— (BUSINESS WIRE) — BridgeComm, Inc., a leader in optical wireless communications (OWC) solutions and services, today announced significant achievements in the advancement of OWC with the on going maturity of its Managed Optical Communication Array (MOCA) hardware and software technology. Validated by a partnership with an independent third party, MOCA technology allows for multi-domain capabilities to share large volumes of data and collaborate significantly faster with increased security.
BridgeComm’s MOCA technology enables a point-to-multipoint laser communications solution with a rapidly steerable system that achieves multi-target transmit and receive connections, while significantly reducing the size, weight and power of traditional tracking OWC terminals. The technology is modular and scalable, allowing for rapid development and implementation of terminals suitable for space, air, land and sea domains.
“All the significant functionalities needed for point-to-multipoint and fully meshed communications have been realized in this design,” said BridgeComm CEO Barry Matsumori. “When considering tactical and strategic applications, the features of our MOCA-based terminals provide several key features for multiple simultaneous connections, comms-on-the-move, and networking across platforms with unparalleled security, unlocking point-to-multipoint capability for optical networks.”
MOCA technology enables secure communications, low probability of detection, low probability of intercept and multi-gigabit per second data rates of laser communications. The modularity of the MOCA system allows for a wide variety of low cost terminals for high-throughput secure connectivity across multiple domains.
