Abstract
This paper presents outline of the optical terminal for Next-generation LEO System (NeLS) in-orbit demonstration, which will be conducted as part of Phase 2 of NeLS project. Two small satellites are assumed to launch into GTO orbit changing distance between them from 500km to 3000km. Acquisition and tracking experiments with a star or planet and 2.4Gbps data transmission between two SmartSat is also planned. The design of optical terminal is briefly presented.
