The European External Action Service and the European Commission hosted on 10 July a live demonstration of the European Data Relay System, also known as “Space data highway”.

The system is the world’s first laser-link in the sky, based on cutting-edge European laser technology, and allows transferring a large volume of data from satellites in space to the Earth in quasi-real-time.

The system is a result of the partnership between the European Space Agency and Airbus, and benefits from €90 million of EU funding from the Copernicus Earth Observation programme and through ESA in the 2015-2020 period.
