Optical Data Payload for Small Satellites – A complete satellite platform with integrated optical communications system for increased data transfer rates.

Project description

Optical transceivers for high-speed satellite communications

A growing number of companies and governments are launching small satellites into orbit, which provide all types of services in large geographical areas or across the globe. However, their performance is largely compromised by bulky and power-hungry radiofrequency communication systems. The demand for high data processing and transmission capacities adds to the number of technical challenges small satellites face in the New Space age. The EU-funded ODALISS project aims to improve the data processing capacity of small satellites. Its new satellite platform will be equipped with an innovative optical transceiver for uplink and downlink transmissions and all necessary sub-systems that can accommodate third-party payloads such as observation equipment.
