Paper Abstract

The Laser Utilizing Communications Equipment (LUCE) installed on the Optical Inter-orbit Communications Engineering Test Satellite (OICETS) has been developed by NASDA (National Space Development Agency of Japan) in order to perform the inter-satellite optical link experiment with ARTEMIS (Advanced Relay and Technology Mission Satellite) of ESA (European Space Agency). To acquire the acquisition, tracking and pointing technology of an optical link is aimed by this in-orbit experiment. The preliminary design of OICETS including LUCE was finished and its result is reported in this paper.
