18 April 2005 Components development for NeLS optical terminal
Author Affiliations +
Next-Generation LEO System (NeLS) Research Center is now conducting continuous effort to demonstrate feasibility of key technologies for optical inter-satellite links in space. Evaluation of critical components for the NeLS optical terminal, such as Wide-range FPM, RX-collimator combined with a fine tracking sensor and devices for optical receiver, were carried out using trial models. In this paper, performance evaluation results are presented including mechanical environmental test and radiation test.
