Abstract
Laser communication terminals based on homodyne BPSK are under in-orbit verification in LEO-to-ground and duplex LEO-LEO 5.65 Gbps links. With the LEO-to-ground link beacon-less acquisition has been verified as a reliable and quick acquisition procedure with acquisition times less than one minute.
