Paper Abstract

Germany's Solid State Laser Communications in Space, or 'SOLACOS' program has undertaken the terrestrial verification of coherent laser communications systems based on Nd:YAG lasers, giving attention to the evaluation and breadboarding of critical components and subsystems. These components encompass the pointing/acquisition/tracking subsystem breadboard, an optical Costas-loop receiver, and advanced Nd:YAG transmitter technology. Results are presented for subsystem components developed to date.
