Our Story

The world is being reinvented in code but not everyone is taking part at present. We want to help solve this. We strive to create a seamless path for technology, information and ideas to reach wherever they need to be. We call this fluidity in communications. We make connectivity reach further and we want to make it matter. It’s because of what can be done with connectivity that we care so deeply to empower organizations, people and the world at large. We are the link that enables and accelerates technology to take a leap forward. We call this catalyzing transformation. To link is to empower. That’s why we enable fluidity in communications as a catalyst for transformation.


We endeavor to solve real, global problems. So we set out on the challenge to invent applications for cutting edge technology for the benefit of our clients, and society-at-large.


We stretch and adapt until we get it right. New challenges require a brave, smart, and flexible way of thinking. Whether it's technology or collaboration amongst our teams, partners, clients or investors; the whole is always greater than the sum of its parts. We are driven by our ambition to make a real difference.


Committed to our teams and partners, we are ready to go above and beyond for the future we are building together. It’s the ‘Collinear Way’. We sharpen our senses, we take risks and we work hard for a brighter tomorrow


As a mature team that has navigated challenges big and small, we pair our technological “know-how” with our partners’ capabilities to envision solutions for the most challenging contexts.


We identify challenges then we set out to tackle and solve them. We are committed to delivering on our promises. When we say we'll do something, we won't stop until we get it done.


Founded in 2014, Collinear is pioneering next generation, ultra-high capacity, over-the-air connectivity solutions for global communication networks. Collinear has been working with Lockheed Martin Space under an exclusive licensing and development agreement, entered in June 2014, to commercialize a hybrid point-to-point, over-the-air transmission product developed by Lockheed Martin Space that incorporates innovative Free Space Optical (FSO) and E-Band RF technology. Initial customer trials of the company’s first technology solution, Alex 1.0, commenced in the fourth quarter of 2017. The product is expected to launch in early 2018. Collinear is based in Silicon Valley, California (in Santa Clara), with an office in Singapore.
