Paper Abstract

An optical inter-satellite communication link should be capable to operate even when the Sun comes close to the pointing direction of one terminal. Therefore straylight suppression at small Sun aspect angles is one of the topics in the Tx/Rx optics design. Each terminal should also be capable to simultaneously transmit and receive laser signals. Therefore, backreflection of transmitted laser light into the receiving channel also has to be care-fully investigated.
