Abstract
The basic requirements for an optical intersatellite/interorbit link are viewed. The most important of these - long life time, sufficient reliability, high redundancy, high power output - lead to a systems approach based on a diode-laser-pumped Nd:YAG-laser system. Based on this technology several systems are discussed and compared to each other with respect to their performance, complexity and receiver sensitivity. It is shown that a system using diode-laser-pumped Nd:YAG-lasers and homodyne detection meets the requirements for future optical communication links.
