We present the results of the on-orbit free-space laser communications between the Optical Inter-orbit Communications Engineering Test Satellite (OICETS) and the Advanced Relay and Technology Mission (ARTEMIS) geostationary satellite. We first introduce the history of developing OICETS and add some descriptions on characteristics of OICETS, where the performance of the optical communication terminal named the Laser Utilizing Communications Equipment (LUCE) is also stated. We summarize the on-orbit investigation results of LUCE's function and finally make a report on the inter-orbit laser communication experiment carried out by ARTEMIS and OICETS.
