Paper Abstract

For over ten years, the Optical Communications Group at M.I.T. Lincoln Laboratory has been investigating and developing the technologies required to make high to very high data rate optical intersatellite crosslinks a reality. Based on the design for the Laser Intersatellite Transmission Experiment (LITE) of the mid-1980's, an Engineering Model program has developed flight-qualified hardware and an integrated optical terminal. In parallel, technology extension work has concentrated on achieving higher data rate and higher power terminals in smaller, lighter packages.
