Abstract
AS A CONTRIBUTION TO THE NAVY'S SATELLITE LASER COMMUNICATIONS PROGRAM, WE PROPOSE TO OPTIMIZE LASER RELIABILITY BY IMPLEMENTING A CRYOGENIC GAS PROCESSING SYSTEM DURING A LASER LIFETEST. THE EXPECTED LIFETIME TO 10% ENERGY REDUCTION SHOULD BE GREATER THAN 100 MILLION SHOTS. WE WILL GATHER DATA ON GAS COMPOSITION AND GAS CONTAMINATION AS WELL AS ANALYZE OPTICAL CONTAMINATION. OUR CONCLUSION FROM THE RESULTS OF THE TEST SHOULD CONTRIBUTE TO IMPROVING THE NEXT GENERATION LASER.
