A NdYAG laser operating in a dual functioning cavity with a Ba2NaNbO35 frequency doubling crystal provides two frequencies of laser radiation, one frequency double the other. This provides a laser beacon beam at a wavelength of approximately 1.06 micrometers and a high data rate beam at a wavelength of approximately 0.53 micrometer.
