Abstract

This report discusses the design, construction, and testing of a compact, aircraft laser communication terminal developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Lincoln Laboratory. The project focuses on scaling down an existing experimental terminal in both size and weight and adding new functionalities. The final design is an initial effort to transition from laboratory-grade hardware to a path-to-flight design.
