Paper Abstract

A space-based optical communications system requires the development of high-precision yet rugged electro-optical hardware. Lincoln Laboratory has built and assembled an engineering model of a high-data-rate heterodyne laser communication satellite crosslink to demonstrate the fabrication, integration, and test methods required of an actual flight system. A description of the hardware that has been developed and the testing program to which it has been subjected is presented.
