This proposal will outline a bi-directional software defined Free Space Optics (FSO) laser communications testbed with flexible optical elements and reprogrammable waveform and signal processing elements. Vulcan Wireless Inc. currently manufacturers a 1550nm, eye safe, software defined Laser Communications Testbed MD-LC-1 and will use this as a basis for the Phase 1 effort. We will also be teaming with the Aerospace Corporation for high performance fiber laser and amplifier and modulator. We will demonstrate the flexibility of this testbed platform by demonstrating the rapid integration of the AeroSpace Corporation’s AeroCube fiber amplifier.
