  • The interest in fast and secure optical communication link has grown in the last years driven by the increasing demand in data throughput for applications spanning from small satellites for global services to large satellites for secure communications, from Earth Observation distributed sensing networks to CubeSat constellations for in-orbit inspections of large satellites; in addition particular interest is also demonstrated by military market. Moreover, besides speed, in modern information… CONTINUE READING
