Paper Abstract

This paper presents the design of a prototype terrestrial lasercom terminal for operation in the 1.55 micrometers wavelength range. The design is based on a multibeam-multipath technology which allows multiple laser beams to be transmitted from various spatially separated optics, and optical signals to be received by using multiple large aperture lenses. The goal of this project is to experimentally study performance parameters of shorter distance terrestrial laser links in the 1.5 micrometers wavelength range which use an optical array approach to increase system performance and reliability.
