Abstract
The National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) plans to conduct an optical inter-orbit ling experiment in cooperation with the European Space Agency (ESA). ESA will launch the ARTEMIS geostationary satellite equipped with the SILEX optical terminal. NASDA will launch the Optical Inter-orbit Communications Engineering Test Satellite (OICETS) equipped with the LUCE optical inter-orbit communications equipment into low earth orbit. The link experiment will be conducted between these satellites with associated ground equipment in Europe and Japan.
