Paper Abstract

The Space Environment Research Centre (SERC) endeavors to demonstrate the ability to maneuver high area to mass ratio objects using ground based lasers. Lockheed Martin has been leading system performance modeling for this project that includes high power laser propagation through the atmosphere, target interactions and subsequent orbital maneuver of the object. This paper will describe the models used, model assumptions and performance estimates for laser maneuver demonstration.
