Optical satellite links have gained increasing attention throughout the last years. Especially for the application of optical satellite downlinks. Within the OSIRIS program, DLR's Institute of Communications and Navigation develops optical terminals and systems which are optimized for small satellites. After the successful qualification and launch of two precursor terminals, DLR currently develops OSIRISv3, a 3rd generation OSIRIS terminal with up to 10 Gbps downlink rate, and OSIRIS4Cubesat, a miniaturized version optimized for Cubesat Applications. The University of Stuttgart's Institute of Space Systems develops small satellites, which are used to demonstrate novel technologies in the Space domain. Together, DLR and University of Stuttgart integrated the first OSIRIS generation onboard the Flying Laptop satellite, which was launched in July 2017 and has been successfully operated since. This paper will give an overview about DLR's OSIRIS program. Furthermore, it will show first results of OSIRISv1 on Flying Laptop. Therefore, the Flying Laptop satellite and OSIRISv1 will be explained. Preliminary results from the validation campaign, where optical downlinks have been demonstrated, will be given.
