Experimental results of satellite-to-ground laser communications link through atmospheric turbulence using SOTA

Paper Abstract

In recent years, the performance of observation equipment mounted on satellites has improved to such levels that it can obtain significant amount of data from a single observation [1]. Radio waves are used as a method for transmitting large volumes of data acquired by satellites to the ground. However, currently operational radio frequencies make it difficult to improve the communication speed, owing to interference problems and the carrier frequency. Space optical communication is expected to be a solution to this problem.
