Join us Tuesday, June 11th, from 5:00pm - 7:30pm
for an intriguing presentation by Lyteloop,
and a demonstration of the Strasenburgh Planetarium's new 4K projection system.

What's the Concept?

Utilizing LyteLoop’s revolutionary patent pending technology, HyperScale Data Centers can now be built in space.

Having the data circulate in perpetual motion between satellites will enable storage of hundreds of petabytes worth of data.

The proposed satellite constellations can be comprised of either SmallSats or “large” satellites and at any orbital plane. LyteLoop ST will bring with it not only three additional levels of security above the current levels provided by terrestrial Data Centers but doing so at a substantially lower total cost of ownership.

Are these guys serious? Let's find out.

With a patent that includes inventors:

Alan Willner, the Steven and Kathryn Sample Chair in Engineering, University of Southern California, Santa Barbara (>1300 publications, including one book, 9 edited books, >35 U.S. patents, >39 keynotes/plenaries, >23 book chapters, >375 refereed journal papers, and >225 invited papers/presentations

Paul McManamon, Chief Scientist (retired), Sensors Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Technical Director of the Ladar and Optical Communications Institute, LOCI, at the University of Dayton, and president and CTO of Exciting Technology LLC,

Ohad Harlev, Prior to co-founding Lyteloop Mr. Ohad Harlev served as the president of RRsat America ((NASDAQ: RRST) (presently known as MX1 which was acquired by SES –Prior to heading RRsat America Mr. Harlev served as RRsat's MSS Managing Director as well as Corporate General Counsel and Company Secretary. Prior to RRsat Mr. Harlev held senior positions as VP, Business Development and General Counsel of Kamor Ltd (TASE: KMOR); VP, General Counsel & Business Development fiber optics division of Gilat Satcom (TASE and AIM); and corporate counsel at Amdocs (NASDAQ: DOX). Mr. Harlev, has extensive experience as a leader in various hi-tech fields including telecommunication, fintech and satellites.

...this concept has merit, but will it be commercialized?

Networking, new ideas, food, entrepreneurs, your colleagues, a bar...all this for just $25 which includes two drinks, a selection of appetizers, and easy parking at the Rochester Museum and Science Center.

We will also have the 2019 New York Photonics Map/Calendars on hand!

5:00 - sign in
5:30 - 6:30 presentations
6:30 - 7:30 reception 

We will also enjoy a demonstration of the planetarium's new 4K projection system!
  • RRPC (you) championed the idea of upgrading our planetarium. 
  • John Bruning championed it internally with the RMSC board, and made a financial donation.
  • (Former) Assemblyman Joe Morelle got $500K in assistance, provided through the New York State Economic Development Program (NYSEDP)
  • Navitar donated optics for the new Evans & Sutherland state-of-the-art Digistar 6 full-dome projection system (projectors and software), featuring unprecedented clarity and breathtaking images.
