Small Optical Link for International Space Station (SOLISS) Succeeds in Bidirectional Laser Communication Between Space and Ground Station

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and Sony Computer Science Laboratories, Inc. (Sony CSL) has succeeded in establishing a bidirectional laser communication link between SOLISS (Small Optical Link for International Space Station), installed in the Exposed Facility of the Japanese Experiment Module "Kibo" of the International Space Station (ISS) and the optical ground station for satellite communications of NICT, and in transmitting high-definition image data via Ethernet. This marks the first time in the world that bidirectional symmetric Ethernet links have been established by using laser communication devices designed for small satellites.

FFPA Completes Technical Specifications to Stabilize Various Wireless Communication Systems Co-located in Factory Sites

Flexible Factory Partner Alliance (FFPA. Chairperson Andreas Dengel) has created the technical specifications that is aiming for various wireless systems co-located in factory sites to operate stably. The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has proposed Smart Resource Flow (SRF) wireless platform*1 which has been adopted as architecture for the specifications. By adopting this platform, stable wireless communication is realized, making it easy to visualize and interactively manage various information on the manufacturing sites.

The technical specifications define functions and interfaces to provide framework for coordination and coexistence of wireless systems with different standards, of different generations, and by different vendors coexisting in a same factory site.

An overview of the specifications will be presented at the FFPA seminar, “A vision of future factory sites created with the SRF wireless platform ~ Introduction of FFPA technical specifications Version1 ~ ” held on October 31 in Tokyo.

* Development of SRF wireless platform by NICT has been supported by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications Japan for the project entitled “R&D on Technologies to Densely and Efficiently Utilize Radio Resources of Unlicensed Bands in Dedicated Areas” since 2017.
