Paper Abstract

Several optomechanical design trades have been conducted for the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Direct Detection Laser Transceiver (DDLT) program. DDLT is an experiment designed to demonstrate high data rate direct detection optical communication technology for space applications. Weight, resonance frequency, and the accommodation of a complex thermal design are the primary transmitter design drivers. The receiver hermetic seal is the major optomechanical design issue. In addition to the transmitter/receiver trade studies, a flight qualified third mirror mode stabilized laser diode was developed.
