The Optical Communications Group at DLR-Oberpfaffenhofen investigates new technologies to increase the data throughput between Satellites and Ground Stations, by employing free-space optical (FSO) links.
Such advanced technologies require sophisticated analysis of downlink signal quality to different ground-locations and under varying atmospheric conditions.
Under this topic a setup for tracking, receiving, and measuring optical satellite signals shall be optimized and utilized to perform the according measurements with dedicated LEO satellites.
The thesis can comprise the following topics:
· Integrating and optimizing optical receiver frontends and power sensors, including programming their microcontroller firmware
· Tracking and communication tests with various laser targets and satellites
· Measurements of signal stability, employing cameras, power sensors, and data receivers
· Analysis of measurement data, i.e. tracking-error, power scintillation, and received data, with emphasize on establishing channel models specifically for low link elevations.
