Paper Abstract

The tendency toward smaller satellites that is imparted by growing budget constraints suggests an intrinsic applicability of fiber-optic and photonic devices to small satellites in virtue of these technologies' compactness. Attention is presently given to the results of the first operation in space of four active fiber-optic data links, which proceeded over a period of 69 months.
