On-orbit evaluation of satellite-ground laser communication experiment using small optical transponder (SOTA) equipment –Optical Antenna

Paper Abstract

Recently, the sensors ability of remote sensing satellites are offering much better resolution, higher quality, etc. [1] The gathered data size by the satellite has become larger. However, generally, downlink transfer capacity from the satellite to a ground station using RF (Radio Frequency) communication is limited, due to the internal balance of resources (power consumption, size capacity, mass, placement, etc.) in the satellite, and allocation of bandwidth by frequency regulation arrangement.
