Abstract
Develop new techniques to design and build a fiber optical amplifier capable of >10W with wall plug efficiencies of >30% for space based commmunications applications. Fibertek proposes a Phase I program that includes a comprehensive trade analysis on fiberlaser technology, modeling of a baseline architecture followed by design verification experiments. This development is anticipated to supply the building blocks for free space communications systems for future high bandwidth satellite communications andmilitary air to air and air to ground communications requirements.
