Raytheon Blackbird Technologies’ latest Free-Space Optical Communication technology is rewriting the book on laser-driven, high-speed data transfer. Our engineers have developed NexGen Optix, the optical transceiver technology that offers greater bandwidths in a form factor that is smaller, weighs less, uses less power, and costs less than conventional optical systems.
NexGen Optix enables secure, high-capacity, all-domain communications channels for sensor, and other vital data in contested environments. The system incorporates advanced technologies in the field of optics to provide a unique tactical communications system that protects high-speed data transfer across long distances utilizing a nonradio frequency (RF) transport mechanism that is undetectable. The system is easy to use and is interoperable with third-party platforms and data back-hauls.
