Abstract:

The purpose of the program was to establish the feasibility and desirability to the Navy of building a satellite communications link using optical frequencies. Two frequencies will be investigated 10.6 micrometers for transmission to surface platforms, and 0.47 micrometers for transmission to submerged platforms. The purpose of the task element was to develop a propagation model for a 10.6 micrometers signal through clouds. This model can then be used in the system design of an IOC satellite system.
