Paper Abstract

The transcript proceedings of the panel discussion has been included in this volume to provide a permanent record of the opinions and views of the panel members and the audience participants. It also provides a snap-shot of the status of free-space laser communications and the projections for the future. There were a few difficulties encountered in the compilation of this transcript. It was not possible to include all of the view graphs presented by the speakers. Additionally the quality of the audio recording was less than desirable. Every effort was made to accurately interpret the more garbled sections. lt is hoped that these omissions will not detract form the utility of the text. The panel members are acknowledged for their thoughtful presentations and ensightful discussions. Members of the audience asking questions, who could be identified by the conference chairs, have also been included in the transcript.
