Free Space Optical Communications for Nanosats

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Free Space Optical Communications for Nanosats
We will develop this project in 3 stages: modeling, lab demo, and field testing. Modeling: We will create a model of the gray scale, in contrast to binary, data transmission problem. We will model the MRR contrast response versus voltages operation speed. We will include scintillation and atmosphere turbulence modeling for different air masses (i.e. atmosphere thickness crossed at a given angle). The outcome will be the optimal operational parameters.
