Paper Abstract

Airborne platforms have historically been used as a pathway for the development of space applications of free-space laser communications. However, they also are an important element of the evolving network centric battlefield and surveillance architecture. This paper provides an historical perspective of previous programs and a look to the future for airborne Lasercom terminals and applications.
