Paper Abstract

The generic system level requirements for lasercom satellite crosslinks are considered. The system and subsystem design approaches and technologies that can be pursued to achieve a lasercom terminal with minimum size, weight, and cost are examined. A preliminary lasercom terminal design is described which represents a major reduction in size and weight, resulting from a minimum cost design philosophy.
