mBryonics Ltd develop innovative optical systems for telecommunications, Earth observation and science missions to provide advanced sensing, imaging, positioning, data management and data transport capabilities for data-driven applications. We specialise in space optical instruments, photonic intra-sat and high-frequency comms and end-to-end free space optical communication systems for the ground and space segments. 

In these technology domains, our company focuses on providing end-to-end system-level solutions and engineering services for the next era of SatCom mesh networks, integrated space and terrestrial networks, secure communications, space exploration, Earth observation, deep space and science missions, Space Situational Awareness, and private space-based services. 

A privately owned SME based in Galway, Ireland, our company is developing a vertically integrated model to provide design, system engineering and advanced Manufacture, Assembly, Integration and Test (MAIT) to meet our customer’s requirements for lower cost missions, satellite miniaturisation, and series production for constellations.
