Abstract
OCC's monolithically integrated, WDM, optoelectronic module technology offers numerous advantages over traditional approaches to space-based communication systems. The advantages of this integrated solution include small size and weight, low power consumption, scalability, and radiation hardness, as well as the ability to realize bidirectional data communications over a common optical path. In addition, this module technology enables OCC's distributed switching architectures. These novel architectures make it possible to realize a fault tolerant, protocol independent, highly secure, and adaptable free space network over a single free space optical path. OptiComp's unique combination of hardware and architecture technologies makes it particularly well postured to address the network needs of satellite clusters.
