Space Data Highway

The Space Data Highway (SDH) is a service operated by Airbus that uses the European Data Relay System (EDRS) to provide laser-based communications from LEO and airborne systems to GEO satellites for relay back to ground stations. The SDH uses both the EDRS-A and EDRS-C satellites and is operated by Airbus in Munich, Germany. As of early 2020, the SDH has completed more than 30,000 laser connections in its four years of operation with a reliability rate of 99.53%. [1]
