Update on DLR's OSIRIS program

Paper Abstract

Optical satellite downlinks have gained increasing attention throughout the last years. Especially for the application of optical satellite downlinks, DLR's Institute of Communications and Navigation is developing a number of payloads for various satellites. Within the OSIRIS program, DLR develops experimental optical terminals and systems which are optimized for small satellites.

This presentation will give an update on DLR's existing payloads (i.e. on the satellites Flying Laptop and BIROS, which have been launched in 2017 and 2016, respectively). First results will be presented. Furthermore, an outlook to planned missions will be given. This includes OSIRIS4Cubesat, which is planned for launch in Q4/2018, and OSIRISv3, which will be installed at the Airbus DS Bartolomeo platform aboard the ISS in 2019.
