Paper Abstract

A 'many points in one point' multiaccess laser system has been examined, and results are reported which indicating the feasibility of optical communications multiaccess communications is feasible and that the resultant terminal size and with savings are very substantial compared to the dedicated optical terminals or RF multiaccess approaches. A preliminary design has been accomplished of a package that can weigh less than 150 pounds and which uses a 10-in. effective diameter fixed telescope and requires less than 100 W of regulated power and less than 8 cu ft of space.
