abstract

Current development status of the small optical transponder (SOTA) to be installed into a small satellite is described, where the breadboard model, the engineering model and the protoflight model are respectively introduced. The tracking performance is estimated to show that the angular error is low enough in comparison to the divergence angle of the transmitted beam.
