Project Introduction

Fast, Power-Efficient Pulse Modulator For Optical Crosslinks
This project will advance optical communications interlinking between small spacecraft using pulse position modulation. The Miniature Optical Communications Transceiver (MOCT) consists of a novel software-defined pulse modulator, integrated laser system, and avalanche photodetection system. At the end of the project, MOCT will be tested for a future CubeSat flight demonstration mission. More »
