DOG-DA Free Space Optical Detector
The DOG-DA Free Space Optical Detector is a fibre-coupled optical detector for the reception of optical free space communication. The detector features four highly responsive InGaAs avalanche photodiodes (APD) with fibre-coupled input. The amplified and limited output make it suitable for receiving hard-decision on-off-keying (O3K) signals according to CCSDS standards 141.0-B-x and 142.0-B-x. Built in a 19″ rack mount housing both a frontpanel user interface and network access via SNMP and HTTP interface provide easy integration into satellite ground station infrastructures.
