Paper Abstract

ACLAIM is a multi-function instrument consisting of a laser communication terminal and an imaging camera that share a common telescope. A single APS-(Active Pixel Sensor) based focal-plane-array is used to perform both the acquisition and tracking (for laser communication) and science imaging functions. ACLAIM was designed based on all commercially available catalog items. The instrument opto-mechanical design and performance is described here.
