MOWACS Modal Wavefront Control System is a form of Coherent Optical Adaptive Techniques COAT used to obtain information required to correct turbulence and thermal blooming aberrations characteristic of high energy lasers in the atmosphere. The feasibility of replacing complex multi-segment mirror COAT systems with continuously deformable mirrors was established in Phase I. In Phase II the system was upgraded to include a 100 Hz bandwidth closed loop system and to allow the introduction of more sophisticated aberrations.
