Center Independent Research & Development: GSFC IRAD

Advanced laser architecture for mass spectrometry project

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

For the FY16 IRAD, we will focus our development effort on a new laser architecture that is based on the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA) laser transmitter.  This approach will generate the necessary mid-infrared (MIR) and ultraviolet (UV) lasers on a single laser bench with a straightforward development path toward flight readiness.

Our FY16 objectives are for technology maturation for risk reduction and defining a path for space for this laser transmitter.
