Abstract
Optical inter-satellite links are foreseen in ESA's satellite communication projects for the linking of two geostationary telecommunication satellites and in the context of the European Data Relay Satellite project (DRS). In preparation of these missions, a Payload and Spacecraft Demonstration and Experimentation (PSDE) programme has been set up for the in-flight demonstration of optical space links in the early 1990s. This paper reports on the progress of system studies and related technology developments.
