CONNECTIVITY

EVERYWHERE

we're orchestrating networks at planetary scale

Aalyria is creating, organizing and managing the world’s most advanced networks to enable connectivity everywhere at the speed of discovery. Aalyria brings together two technologies originally developed at Alphabet as part of its wireless connectivity efforts:
atmospheric
laser
communications
technology and a
software
platform
for orchestrating networks across land, sea, air, space and beyond. It is backed by leading Silicon Valley investors including the founders of Accel, J2 Ventures and Housatonic.

network orchestration software platform

Spacetime is a software platform for orchestrating networks of ground stations, aircraft, satellites, ships, and urban meshes.  It optimizes and continually evolves the antenna link scheduling, network traffic routing, and spectrum resources — responding in realtime to changing network requirements.  Spacetime operates networks across land, sea, air, and space, at any altitude or orbit type, supports all radio frequency bands and optical wavelengths, and it is designed for interoperability with legacy, hybrid space, 5G NTN and FutureG network architectures.

Tightbeam is the world's most advanced coherent light free space optics technology. At rates faster than any other solutions available today and covering greater distances than previously imagined, it moves data intact through the atmosphere and weather, and offers connectivity where no supporting infrastructure exists. Tightbeam radically improves satellite communications, Wi-Fi on planes and ships, and cellular connectivity everywhere.
