Abstract
ABSTRACT: Next generation defense and commercial satellites will acquire and process data at significantly higher rates than current satellites. This will necessitate the development of high speed fiber optic communications infrastructure for intra-satellite communications, including the development of highly reliable space-qualified transceivers. This work is expected to provide a very small form factor module for intra-satellite communications. Key aspects to the technology are wide temperature range operation, high bandwidth connectivity>10Gbits/s suitable for harsh environments. BENEFIT: This technology can be applied to a number of applications that require low swap, high performance communications. Next generation telecom, datacom, and free space applications will benefit from this technology.
