Paper Abstract

The laboratory test configuration of an engineering model of a CO2 laser homodyne communication system is described. The system is based on a full-scale transceiver and a simulated opposite terminal (SOT). The transceiver technology development has been initiated and sup-ported by the European Space Agency and is now going to be completed. The SOT has been designed as a transmitter including front-end optics (telescope) and pointing elements. Fully representative functional and operational tests of the transceiver and the whole system are possible.
