Paper Abstract

In the last decade, Thales Alenia Space has put a lot of its research effort on Photonic Technologies for Space Application with the aim to offer the market satellite telecommunication systems better performance and lower costs. This research effort has been concentrated on several activities, some of them sponsored by ESA. Most promising applications refer to Payload Systems. In particular, photonic payload applications have been investigated through the following two ESA studies: Artes-1 “Next Generation Telecommunication Payloads based on Photonic Technologies” and Artes-5 “OWR – Optical Wideband Receiver” activities.
