The 'Freespace Experimental Laser Terminal II'

At­tached to the un­der­side of DLR’s Dornier Do 228-212 re­search plane – the ‘Freespace Ex­per­i­men­tal Laser Ter­mi­nal II’ for da­ta com­mu­ni­ca­tions be­tween the air­craft and the ground. Nu­mer­ous mea­sure­ments were tak­en with the sys­tem. The rel­e­vant prop­er­ties of the at­mo­sphere were de­ter­mined in or­der to op­ti­mise the da­ta trans­mis­sion sys­tems.

Attached to the underside of DLR’s Dornier Do 228-212 research plane – the ‘Freespace Experimental Laser Terminal II’ for data communications between the aircraft and the ground. Numerous measurements were taken with the system. The relevant properties of the atmosphere were determined in order to optimise the data transmission systems.
