Paper Abstract

We report our research results of system trial fabrication and tests as the first step of Optical Intersatellite Communication research. Second, the results of the Optical Inter-orbit Communications Engineering Test Satellite (OICETS) feasibility study are reported. Last, we describe the draft results of a conceptual study of a future optical communications system that will be needed as space infrastructure.
