Paper Abstract

An in-flight check-out and monitoring approach for an optical communication transceiver terminal on-board a communication satellite will be described. Primarily an inter-pretation of available payload input parameter characteristics will be used, which has no detrimental effect on payload's basic function and which requires only a minimum of additional diagnostic hardware. A method to check out the optical payload pointing, acquisition and tracking function without a counter terminal will be described and means to monitor laser output power at telescope level will be outlined.
