With urgent demand for an integrated information network and development of free-space laser communication technology, research on high-rate laser communication networking technology is vital. This study analyzed the technical difficulties related to space laser communication networking and proposed a laser communication networking solution. A wide-angle beam expander and dual-rotating prism group were incorporated into a multiaccess optical laser communication antenna. The wide-angle beam expander collects signal light from different directions; the dual-rotating prism group tracks different targets simultaneously. This paper presents an overall scheme allowing multiaccess free-space laser communications based on the optical antenna described and the associated relay optics and transceiver subsystems.
