Laser Communications Challenge Game

About the game

Optical spectrum uses light as a means of transmitting information via lasers. Optical communications benefits include being faster, more secure, lighter and more flexible. Optical communications challenges include a need for precise laser beam accuracy and Earth's atmosphere interference, such as clouds.

In this game you will transmit information using optical communications. You will use relay mirrors to direct the laser around obstacles to successfully align the beam and relay data. Each scenario increases in difficulty with the goal of constructing a communication network and synchronizing atomic clocks.
