In this paper, the matching between some key performance parameters such as field of view, optical aperture, control bandwidth and engineering issues including weight, power, volume, lift time in APT sybsystem of optical communication link are analyzed and discussed in detail according to the requirement of BER, communication distance, platform jitter, background light intensity and other system parameters, the two communication terminal carrier are the GEO satellite and airplane. The goal of the system is to fulfill optical communication at data rates of 622Mb/s from aircraft at the altitudes of 10000 ~ 25000 m to another terminal mounted on satellite on the orbit of GEO, they are 40000 km away from each other. Communication error rates is better than 10-6; the airborne terminal must be able to operate within temperature ranges of -65°C to +55°C and be able to survive in humidity.
