(1) Compact Doppler Lidar as a precision Entry, Descent and Landing sensor, for planetary/ lunar/asteroid missions. (2) Configurable, rapid-scan, multi-beam capability enabled by NMBS technology, provides for enhanced EDL sensor functionality, e.g. for terrain-mapping, hazard avoidance, and hazard relative navigation. (3) Relative navigation sensor for spacecraft constellation flying, enabled by lidar ranging sensors with NMBS technology (4) Laser beam pointing, stabilization, and scanning of any Lidar/Ladar based sensor, including for mosaic-tiled 3D-imaging ladar.
(1) Agile, compact optical terminal for laser communication for hosted-payloads, small-satellite, and CubeSat platform, that are of interest to AF and NRO missions. (2) Enables space optical networking, and autonomous communication links for satellite constellation mission. (3) Enables optical time-transfer for accurate navigation, with potential for optically aided GPS (4) Precision steering for mosaic-tiled 3D Imaging Ladar application, for ISR missions. (5) Laser beam-steering, tracking and stabilization for directed-energy laser application.
