Kuiper, S. Doelman, N.J. Pettazzi, F. Vosteen, L.L.A. Truyens, D.C. Crowcombe, W.E. Human, J.D. Ferrario, I. Calvo, R.M. Poliak, J. Barrios, R. Giggenbach, D. Fuchs, C. Scalise, S. Publication year 2018 Abstract To overcome data rate limitations of RF communication links with satellites, TNO and DLR envision optical free-space communication feeder links for next generation high throughput satellites. This paper provides a feasibility assessment of such links and the technology needed. The main results of the link budget and the turbulence modeling of terabit/s optical links are presented. Based on these parameters, requirements and status of the link-subsystems are discussed, and a roadmap is presented, aimed at achieving terabit per second optical feeder links.
