Optical feeder links for next-generation satellites
Optical feeder links for satellite communication systems – offering up to 1 terabit/second throughput – will be essential in the coming years. It is the most advanced solution for the existing digital division. The EU-funded VERTIGO project aims to develop systems for ground and onboard technologies, providing increased throughput with higher spectral and power efficiency. It will also provide high optical power generation through amplifier power increase, combining incoherent/coherent power. Atmospheric multiplication of impairments will also be reduced with the cutting-edge system of opto-mechanical and digital correction techniques. Full-scale demonstrations will take place. The new technology will support very high throughput satellite systems and help to preserve the EU's technological and industrial competitiveness.
