Abstract
Laser communications (Lasercomm) for long distance airborne applications offer the potential for secure, high capacity communications outside the traditional radio frequency (RF) spectrum. This paper will present laboratory and field experiments evaluating curvature adaptive optics for Lasercomm terminal architectures to enable long-range (<200 km) and high rate (10’s Gbps) communication links for airborne applications. In particular, the benefits of and requirements to implement higher order adaptive optics correction for airborne systems in addition to tip/tilt correction will be discussed.
