Abstract
A laser communication system concept for intersatellite link applications, based on diode-pumped Nd laser technology and coherent detection, is analyzed. As a result of modulation format comparison, parametric link budget and trade-off analysis, a DPSK heterodyne receiver-based communication system is proposed. The coherent-detection full duplex 1.064-1.047-micron Nd-laser link offers the advantages of high link capacity and quality, reduced telescope aperture and relaxed pointing accuracy requirements.
