Paper Abstract

A Lasercom Space Measurement Unit (LSMU) is in hardware integration being prepared for the P80-1 satellite. First launch capability is late 1983. A digital processor provides internal control of the system, line-of-sight pointing from the LSMU to the ground terminal and performs data formatting for telemetry. The control software is organized to provide much flexibility in controlling the lasercom experiment. System control functions and their digital implementation is discussed.
