Paper Abstract

Since about 1977, the European Space Agency ESA is pursuing activities in the field of optical communications for space applications. With the worldwide recognition which these technologies experienced over the last few years, optical communication payloads are now seriously considered for some of ESA's forthcoming satellite projects. Parallel to this project-oriented work, ESA continues with research and development activities on optical communication systems and components.
