Paper Abstract

NASA is currently building a 1-m R&D telescope laboratory at its Table Mountain Facility in southern California to answer key implementation questions of this technology. The telescope is designed with fast tracking capability and will act as a testbed for development of ground acquisition, tracking and communication strategies applicable to future operational stations. Establishment of requirements and analysis to predict the performance of large diameter `photon bucket' telescope is continuing. These and other programs currently under development are described below.
