Abstract:

The analytical part of the SOCOM Solar Optical Communications program consisted of studies of the theoretical and practical limitations of space communication systems using sunlight as a carrier, together with exploration of ways of simulating and testing such systems on the earth. The areas studied included wavelength spectrum, optical systems, modulation and demodulation techniques, tracking and stabilization problems, system design, and simulation techniques. Author
