The main objectives of the OGS-LID activity are:
The development of the next generation AOGS reaches the limits of today’s state-of-the-art. Thus, Synopta has carefully analyzed the associated risks and identified an appropriate risk mitigation approach. The main challenges are:
The current activity is one pillar to address these challenges prior to a product development phase.
The next generation AOGS product series of Synopta, both, stationary or transportable, targets application in Optical Feeder Links capable of handling multi-100Gbit/s data rates.
In general, the AOGS is fully transparent to the type of modulation applied. Transparent optical modulation schemes and their corresponding appropriate RF-optical (de-) modulation technologies for Tbit/s feeder links and corresponding high transmit power levels are supported.
The Synopta AOGS product series support high-data-rate laser communication links for:
The main features of the Synopta AOGS product series are:
The basic system architecture of the Synopta AOGS product series is shown in the Figure below.
Within this activity, mainly the Tx part of the adaptive optics is addressed.
The work plan comprises three milestones (BDR, MTR, FR). Along these milestones the main phases are:
FR is targeted for 09/2018.
The project has achieved MTR (MS2) in October 2017.
