abstract

The experiment results on the inter-orbit laser communications between OICETS and a geostationary satellite and the results of two kinds of orbit-to-ground laser communications between OICETS and ground stations are summarized. The geostationary satellite for the inter-orbit demonstrations is the European Space Agency's geostationary satellite, ARTEMIS, and the ground stations for the orbit-to-ground demonstrations are of the National Institute of Information, and Communications Technology (NICT) in Japan and the German Aerospace Center (DLR), respectively. The descriptions of those experiments contain some statistically analyzed results as well as data samples measured during the demonstrations. The authors present the overview of these demonstration progresses and discuss on the results.
