Paper Abstract

A high frame rate CCD camera with interface to a digital signal processor has been developed for a pointing control loop for laser communications. The CCD array is operated in a windowed- read mode with the digital signal processor controlling the vertical and horizontal shifts in the image and storage planes. Development of the camera and interface hardware for a demonstration of precision beam pointing is presented.
