Abstract

Optical carriers offer specific benefits for space-to-space communications. The large bandwidth capability in new, unoccupied frequency regimes and the possibility of obtaininq high gains with small size antennas make them an attractive alternative to conventional radio- and microwaves. Under a contract from the European Space Agency ESA the problems of optical communications in space have been studied into detail, resulting in the design of a CO2 laser transceiver system which is most suited to meet the technical objectives.
