Abstract

The tracking and pointing performance of the Laser Utilizing Communications Equipment (LUCE) equipped on the Optical Inter-orbit Communications Engineering Test Satellite (OICETS) is presented. The operation characteristics of LUCE observed in the ground-satellite communication demonstrations are focused on. Since the angular movement of LUCE's optical antenna required in the ground-satellite trials exceeds the specification demanded in the inter-satellite communications, the marginal performance for proper tracking and pointing can be observed. During the ground-satellite communication trials, the ground stations found periodical discontinuances in the optical link. By looking at the LUCE's telemetries, the cause of the repeated breaks is revealed.
