The startup’s plan for a balloon-based internet that shoots lasers at your house

A GOOGLE-BACKED startup plans to use lasers to broadcast high-speed internet to people in remote areas.

Last year, Alphabet completed Project Loon, which aimed to provide internet with a bunch of balloons.

A Google-backed startup plans to use lasers to bring high-speed internet to people in remote areas.

The technology wasn’t wasted, however, and is now being used by a Google-backed startup called Aalyria.

The startup has inherited Alphabet’s goals of bringing high-speed internet to the masses, but it doesn’t use balloons.

Instead, the company hopes to use lasers and the cloud to beam the internet to the most remote areas of the world.

Aalyria explained in a press release that its mission is to manage “hyper-fast, ultra-secure, and highly complex communications networks spanning land, sea, air, near space, and outer space.”

Aalyria focuses its efforts on two main technologies: Tightbeam and Spacetime.

Tightbeam is a laser communications system that uses beams of light to transmit data between base stations and endpoints and spacetime, according to The Verge.

And Spacetime, developed for Alphabet’s Loon project, is cloud-based software meant to monitor and manage changing connections.

Spacetime essentially predicts when a tightbeam station needs to shift its link to a moving object like an airplane or boat.

The company noted that its laser communications technology is “exponentially larger and faster than anything available today.”

Aalyria’s software has also been used in several Google aerospace networking projects.
