ScyLight station KENTRIKO Selidas 

 The European Space Agency (ESA) has decided to build the first ground station of the ambitious ARTES ScyLight program next to the Helmos Observatory in Achaia, the National Observatory of Athens’ largest research center.

The program, which aims to integrate space technologies into high-speed broadband networks, concerns the next generation of telecommunications, where information will be transmitted by laser systems between ground stations and satellites.
HPhos with its members and collaborators, as a leading ecosystem in laser based and photonics applications, is willing to play a key role in this ambitious project.
