Abstract
SA Photonics is pleased to propose the COMET modular satellite laser system. The system integrates tunable laser diodes, fiber amplification, and wavelength division multiplexing to produce a highly flexible and scalable light source suitable for satellite communication and sensing needs. BENEFIT: The COMET system is designed for multi-function use with scalable bandwidth and optical power. High average power or peak power is user commandable. Peak power can scale by over 30X via wavelength multiplexing. COMET provides a future proof platform that can scale, meet the growing bandwidth, and sensing needs.
