Our Companies Portfolio
Laser Light ™ Communications, LLC
Laser Light is a new approach to a proven business model – global data transport – offering higher security, lower underlying costs, on a dynamic, automated, advanced operating platform as an alternative to legacy transport networks. Never before has there been a viable alternative with equivalent service capabilities to legacy fiber networks - subsea, buried, aerial. Never before has security-conscious businesses, institutions, or government had an option to “fly” over the oceans, and avoid national boundaries, rather than being tied to costly legacy, physical infrastructure – vulnerable to cuts, tapping, and round about fixed routes, a true “Direct Connection”. Laser Light's HALO Global Network is an evolution in global data transport, offering highest level of security, lowest cost, “greenest footprint” whilst equivalent to any legacy transport network service.
CITE™, Inc. is developing a privately financed, owned & operated, but publicly available advanced test facility - the Center for Innovation, Testing & Evaluation (CITE). CITE will serve as an open operating test, evaluation and commercialization facility for next-generation innovations and technologies. It will provide a proving ground for technologies arising from federal laboratories, universities, not-for-profit technology centers, federal departments and agencies, and the private sector. The facility will be designed to allow new technologies to integrate into the nation's urban, suburban and rural "legacy infrastructure," and provide detailed measurable results on their impact to the economy and its many sectors, e.g., energy, transportation, telecommunications, security, and agriculture.
