ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a tunable, versatile high-efficiency, optical free-space link including the transmitter and receiver with an adaptive modulation capability. The development of adaptive modulation will be achieved through the study of contrasting approaches for adaptive modulation including data clock-rates and adaptive modulation formats. BENEFIT: This new adaptive modulation technology will be useful throughout the global satellite network as defined by the TCA, in STSS and in UAVs, communication satellites, avionic network systems, ships, and many other military platforms.
