Takashi Nakao

My background is in the development of optical disk formats (e.g. DVD, Blu-ray, Archival Disc) and in optical engineering, including personally conceptualizing and commercializing new technologies. Now I am involved in developing an optical space communication system, working on fundamental systems architecture and the optical components. In the past, engineering design for satellites prioritized reliability above all, and this dictated the development methodologies adopted. Now I aim to apply my expertise about the development and mass production of optical disks to the development of compact, low-cost, mass-producible optical space communication systems.
