Abstract
A wave-optics simulation has been developed which can model and optimize the performance of three-dimensional laser guidestar systems. Important parameters of such a system are discussed. The simulation is described and used to illustrate the difference between zero-, two- and three-dimensional beacons. A number of runs are made to show the effect of varying various simulation and system parameters.
