Connectivity Business News is pleased to introduce our new podcast, “The Dish,” where our editors interview the biggest names in the satellite communications sector to discuss new developments, trends and more. In this first episode, Deputy Editor Nathan Strout speaks with Tina Ghataore, chief commercial officer at lasers communications provider Mynaric (NASDAQ: MYNA and FRA:M0Y).
Mynaric is a key supplier of optical intersatellite links, a technology that the U.S. Space Force claims will be a key component of its future satellite constellations. Mynaric is already providing laser terminals to the Space Development Agency and other military customers. L3Harris Technologies (NYSE: LHX) invested $11.2 million in the company in July 2022, giving L3Harris approximately 7.2% of Mynaric’s total shares, according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
“For players like Mynaric based here in the U.S. and also in Germany, this has given us an avenue to really deploy this technology on scale. That’s a critical thing,” said Ghataore.
Tune in for an update on those efforts and a discussion on the future of the U.S. government’s use of laser communications in this inaugural episode of “The Dish.”
