Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Omnidirectional Inter-satellite Optical Communicator
The objective of the Omnidirectional Inter-Satellite Optical Communicator (ISOC) project is to design a compact, lightweight, and energy efficient omnidirectional inter-satellite laser comm system for cross linking between spacecraft. The ISOC uses a dodecahedron geometric array of chip scale, MEMS-based gimbal-less scanning mirrors that provide adjustable beam pointing and spherical field of view coverage for uninterrupted data transmission between several small spacecraft at arbitrary relative positions.
