WASHINGTON, District of Columbia - The U.S. Naval Research Laboratory is working with the Space Development Agency to build a hardware and software testbed for optical communications to link interoperability between satellites. SDA seeks to build a space-based network equipped with Optical Intersatellite Links technology using these initial satellites. This network will enable sending and receiving wideband data from one space vehicle to another and between space vehicles and ground stations.
