The in-orbit experiments of OICETS (optical inter-orbit communications engineering test satellite) are categorized into 4 types as follows: 1) the performance verification of optical devices (laser diode, APD, CCD, QD) in space, 2) experiment for acquisition, tracking and pointing of an optical link, 3) optical communications experiment with ARTEMIS, and 4) optical link experiment between OICETS and an optical ground station. The experiment plan has been detailed taking account of the conditions of the optical terminals, the satellite bus, the operation for control, and the orbit location. The design of the ground system for the experiment las also proceeded in compliance with the requirements from the experiment plan. The detailed experiment plan is reported in this paper, together with the design of laser utilizing communications equipment.
