Morio Toyoshima is the Director of Japan’s Space Communications Laboratory, the Wireless Networks Research Center in NICT. In this lecture, he will talk about the recent trends and future prospects of space laser communications
Space laser communications have been verified in orbit recently by micro-satellites, which will revolutionize space systems architecture. Many satellite mega-constellations programs are planning to use space laser communications. The recent trends and future prospects of space laser communications will be presented.
Morio Toyoshima is the Director of Japan’s Space Communications Laboratory, the Wireless Networks Research Center in NICT. He received a Ph.D. degree from the University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan, in 2003 in electronics engineering. He joined the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) (former CRL, Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications), Japan, in 1994 and soon after was engaged in research for the Engineering Test Satellite VI (ETS-VI) optical communication experiment and later involved in the Ground-to-Orbit Laser-com Demonstration (GOLD) experiment with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He joined the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) (former NASDA), for the development of the Optical Inter-orbit Communications Engineering Test Satellite (OICETS) from 1999 to 2003. In December 2003, he became a Senior Researcher of the Optical Space Communications Group, NICT. Starting in October 2004, he spent one year as a guest scientist at Vienna University of Technology, Austria, in the field of optical space communications. In 2006 he conducted the ground-to-OICETS laser communication experiments in NICT. He was involved in the development of a Small Optical TrAnsponder (SOTA) for a 50 kg-class micro-satellite and conducted laser communications and basic quantum communications experiments from 2014 to 2016. His research interests are satellite communications, space laser communications, laser beam propagation through atmospheric turbulence, and quantum cryptography.
