Abstract:
Future demands for more information transfer in space will increase the demand for wider space communications with narrower beamwidths. Both of these requirements suggest using as high a carrier frequency as possible. The wider bandwidth is necessary to increase the information carrying capacity. The narrower beam allows the use of a smaller amount of transmitter power to a distant receiver and concomittenly results in larger antenna gains. The Carbon dioxide (CO₂) laser system meets many requirements for a space qualifiable space communication such as wideband modulation capability, potentially long life and reliability. In this paper we discuss several aspects of the design of a CO₂ laser communication system for space application in terms of overall functional requirements, system tradeoffs and subsystem component selection. The results require use of state-of-the-art components which are or can be space qualified.
