Paper Abstract

We present a new laser communications receiver architecture. It consists of an array of individually mounted telescopes, each with a Geiger-mode photon counting detector array. The detector outputs are sent to a central processor using standard digital networking hardware. The concept has many benefits including low cost and scalability.
