Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design and the current implementation state of the SOLACOS breadboard. SOLACOS is the German national program to develop a high data rate inter- satellite communication system. The breadboard comprises two communication terminals and experimental ground infrastructure. Each terminal basically consists of the `Optical Head', which is close to a flight system implementation and the remote `Electronics Rack' with the lasers and electronics. The optical assemblies are connected via fibers. The experimental ground infrastructure will implement a test setup for the verification of the pointing acquisition and tracking subsystem performance.
