Abstract
This paper presents the development and analysis of a wavefront control strategy for the Space Laser Electric Energy (SELENE) power beaming system. SELENE represents a substantial departure from most conventional adaptive optics systems in that the deformable element is the segmented primary mirror and the signal that is fedback includes both the local wavefront tilt and the relative edge mismatch between adjacent segments. The major challenge in designing the wavefront control system is the large number of subapertures that must be commanded. A fast and near optimal algorithm based on the local slope and edge measurements is defined for this system.
