Abstract
Fibertek has designed and is building two space-based lasers for NASA’s CATS-ISS mission. This space-based lidar system requires lasers capable of provide 4-5 kHz output at 1064 nm, 532 nm and 355 nm with each wavelength having ~2-2.5 mJ pulse energy. The lasers will be based on the ISS for a mission lasting up to 3 years.
