Paper Abstract

In view of the European Data Relay Satellite, a system based upon GaA1As laser diodes transmitters and direct detection receivers has been proposed. This paper addresses the problem of link-budget optimization and focuses on its interrelation with acquisition, pointing and tracking performances. Possible means for supporting variable communications requirements are proposed ; the main characteristics of possible USER-terminal "standards" are briefly outlined.
