Paper Abstract

This paper provides an overview of the opto-mechanical subsystem (OMS) for the Lincoln Laboratory Laser Intersatellite Transmission Experiment. The OMS contains the telescope, relay optics, and beam steering mechanisms. The optical, mechanical and thermal aspects of the OMS design are discussed and the predicted design performance is presented.
