OFS, a leading designer of optical fibers, cables, and connectivity solutions, has joined EU-funded research project MERLIN (Multi-gigabit, Energy-efficient, Ruggedized Lightwave Engines for advanced on-board digital processors) for the development of transceivers for telecommunications satellites.

MERLIN’s objective is to develop new space photonics hardware for enabling Terabit optical connectivity within next-generation of high capacity telecommunication satellites.

“We are pleased to be a part of this European R&D team developing the next generation Tera-scale capacity in satellite communication,” said Dr. Lars Grüner-Nielsen, OFS Fellow. “OFS’ engineering team will work to develop a radiation hard multicore multimode fiber for these satellites to enable cost effective capacity scalability and power efficiency,” he adds.

Terabit optical interconnectivity with a unique combination of low-power and high-bandwidth lasers and receivers, low power, radiation-hardened electronic drivers and new radiation-hardened optical fibers will be the focal point of the project work for the next three years. MERLIN’s aim is to integrate these technologies on a space-grade photonic integration platform capable to provide ruggedized transceiver modules with a record-high 150 Gb/s throughput and record-low <10 mW/ Gb/s energy consumption.

“Successful MERLIN transceiver development is expected to favor the advent of highly flexible, advanced telecom satellite payloads, based on optically interconnected Tera-scale digital on-board processors, by achieving disruptive capacity scalability, power efficiency and cost-effectiveness” said Leontios Stampoulidis, project coordinator from Constelex.
