The backend optical assembly module for a space-based, laser communication terminal is presented. The backend optical assembly utilizes voice coil-fast steering mirror technology embedded into a control loop that both provides terminal-level pointing capability, and maintains receive channel fiber coupling. The fast steering mirror technology presents a technical solution for operating within the space environment, while simultaneously meeting the bandwidth requirements for characteristic satellite vibration profiles. The system’s architecture design meets the demands of onplatform, jitter-rejection performance to establish and maintain a communication link.
