advanced Concept for laser uplink/ downlink CommuniCation with sPace Objects


The project has started on June 2015 and will last until June 2017.

It is carried out by the consortium of 7 partners:


C3PO: advanced Concept for laser uplink/ downlink CommuniCation with sPace Objects represents a radical improvement in performance of existing ground to low earth orbit communication systems in terms of weight reduction, on-board power consumption, data rate and communication security & confidentiality.

The proposed project serve the Union’s Common Security & Defence Policy by increasing the satellite communications security.

 

Astri Polska is responsible for development of satellite tracking algorithm and software, which will operate ground station (laser emitter + detector with telescope) at DLR.
Development of the software will be accompanied with extensive numerical modelling of laser beam propagation in the atmosphere.

 

European_UnionThis project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 637595.
