Abstract

SA Photonics is pleased to propose the SOCRATES free space optical communication and sensing system featuring the Photonic Optical Multicast Mast Unit (POMMU). SOCRATES enables 360 degree multicast capability of high bandwidth communication in addition threat search and track capability. SA Photonics will team with the Prof. Michal Lipson of the Lipson Nanophotonics Group at Columbia University who will investigate advanced photonic devices to improve POMMU SWaP-C. SA Photonics has developed a suite of techniques for low SWaP-C atmospheric FSO systems. SA Photonics will optimize its core atmospheric FSO technologies for couple with new component capability from Columbia University to develop a low cost, multicast operation in the marine environment.
