Raft transmits long distance data signals using RF Skywaves on land, or across oceans.

Skywaves, a known phenomenon of HF radio (3-30 MHz range), can travel long distances and intercontinental when propagated back from the atmosphere- where its ionosphere layers act as a mirror.

A Skywave-based signal is not only faster in light speed (50 percent faster through air vs fiber), its travel distance – right on the geodesic line – is also shorter compared to other alternatives, even when the signal bounces back to earth from the ionosphere (50-200Km in altitude) every 3000Km on average.

You cannot break any speed race record using commercial off-the-shelf system components.

Raft is committed to delivering its customers the best performance, reliability, and speed. This is made possible due to our relentless optimization across all proprietary technological components of the high-performance network. 

At Raft we have designated teams for monitoring and optimizing every aspect of the system.

Our users connect to our links at both ends, leveraging our datapath API. Raft handles everything else, transferring bits of data at breakneck speed.

Although the bandwidth is limited (messages are only several bits long), they will arrive with the lowest latency ever.

Beyond reducing latency, our efforts are focused on providing stability, high accuracy, and availability day-long and year-round.

Our HF data communication service offerings include mastering the impacts of physical phenomena and changing conditions (think: solar storms) on service quality, as well as engineering solutions for predicting and dealing with interferences.
