It is proposed that a wide field of view optical system, fitted with multiple fovea of optical receivers and transmitters, could serve multiple ground and near earth clients from geosynch platforms. Payload advantages over a system with separate servers is discussed.A number of optical forms are suitable for this application. Approaches to interfacing the transceivers with the telescope and to moving them to maintain track of each client are suggested.
