Abstract
Solar blind ultraviolet communication techniques have promise to address the military's needs for short range applications where non-line-of-sight and a low probability of interception and detection is required. This paper addresses the general requirements for these systems and discusses an example system developed using a compact quadrupled Nd:YAG laser.
