This activity is to demonstrate reliable bidirectional optical transmission (up to 100Gbps) through the atmosphere in a scenario representative (in terms of link attenuation and optical turbulence) of an optical feeder link between a GEO telecom satellite and an Optical Ground Station. For that purpose, this activity shall design, manufacture and test an end-to-end optical communications breadboard (OCB) representative of an optical feeder link. The technical feasibility and the performances of such OCB ( e.g.maximum achievable data communications rate, bit error rate statistics, availability ) shall be demonstrated under relevant field conditions (e.g. inter island link using the ESAs Optical Ground Station in Tenerife). Procurement Policy: C(1) = Activity restricted to non-primecontractors (incl. SMEs). For additional information please go to EMITS news (dated 05/02/2001) "Industrial Policy measures for non-primes, SMEs and R&D entities in ESA programmes".
