Paper Abstract

A mathematical model of the deployment of multiple laser beacons in astronomical imaging has been created and inverted, with the objectives of approaching the diffraction limit of the telescope and widening its field of view. Initial results have proved encouraging, at least within the confines of the assumptions made.
