Publication year 2019 Abstract To overcome data rate limitations of RF communication links with satellites, TNO and Airbus Netherlands envision optical free-space communication feeder links for next generation high throughput satellites. This poster presents a feasibility assessment of such links and the technology needed by means of a link budget and a turbulence model of terabit/s optical links. 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.
