Reflex Photonics will be presenting a paper at the SPIE Photonics West 2020 conference

A paper written by Guillaume Blanchette entitled Optical interconnect space market and technical challenges  will be presented at the SPIE Photonics West 2020 conference.


The article will present the optical interconnect space market opportunity, applications and technical challenges. We will briefly review the GEO high throughput communication satellite (HTCS), the LEO communication satellite and the LEO observation intra-satellite optical interconnect applications.
We will focus on how optical interconnect products should be designed to answer the requirements of those missions regarding communication performance, mechanical ruggedness, radiation resistance, space and weight limitations and consideration of lifetime expectancy. Illustrations of hardware will be shown to explain how the challenges can be overcome.
