Paper Abstract

In this paper, we summarize progress in free space laser propagation research at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, specifically in the context of propagating and detecting signals through the atmosphere in a maritime environment. Transmission through the atmosphere over large bodies of water presents different challenges than transmission through the atmosphere over land. Our paper reports some of these findings as well as progress in our collaborative efforts to mitigate turbulence to enhance our data links.
