AbstractFibertek proposes an agile pulse- and modulation-format fiber-optic transmitter, that is compatible with free-space optical communication protocols, and is consistent with a space qualifiable roadmap. This leverages our recent and ongoing work on high power (Pavg > 10W) fiber-optic transmitters as well as WDM transmitters, to enable scaling to >10Gb/s links. Furthermore, careful choice of high-reliability and radiation tolerant fiber-optic component technologies will facilitate transition to a space qualifiable prototype. BENEFIT: (1) Ultrahigh bandwidth links via satellite between UAVs and ground control stations (2) Real-time links via LEO/GEO satellites for improved situational awareness (3) Alternative to existing RF satellite links for commercial customers
