Paper Abstract

We would like to report present status of our research on future optical inter-orbit communications. First, we will discuss the key subsystem, that is high power laser transmitter subsystem, making comparison among EDFA, Nd:YAG laser, NDFA and MOPA-LD. Second, we will describe the results of our study that optical downlink would be required in future, mentioning its bottle neck technologies and transmittance laser subsystem. Finally, we will raise a question on a space interoperability, which will be the next item of consideration among concerning entities organization.
