    LISA has successfully completed the Mission Consolidation Review (MCR), a review conducted by the European Space Agency (ESA) to assess progress at the middle of Phase A. The review team examined the current state of the mission design, payload developments, and programatic planning at this early stage in the mission formulation process.

    Laser light differs from conventional light in that all the lightwaves are in phase with each other. Brightness (or, more correctly, radiance) — The most strikingly visible difference between lasers and conventional light sources is that all the emitted light travels in the same direction as an intense beam. The Space-Based Laser is planned to be a spacecraft weigh kg, though this weight could grow to 19, kg. The spacecraft would be 20 meters long with a diameter of over meters.

    DE-STAR or Directed Energy System for Targeting of Asteroids and exploRation is a proposed system to deflect asteroids, comets, and other near-Earth objects (NEO) that pose a credible risk of impact. The objects that cross Earth’s orbit, even relatively small ones, can still have a devastating effect. Research directed toward perfecting a design for a space qualified He-Ne laser, phase II.

The design of a Space Qualified Laser (SQL) required under Item I is pre- sented in detail in Section I1 of this document. The results of our work on subtasks a through f under Item I are detailed in Sectionalong with the results of additional subtasks undertaken at the contractor's option.

Phase I is covered in a NASA Report "Design for a Space Qualified Laser - Oral Presentation Data, which is a summary of the pertinent data presented verbally by Hughes personnel to NASA/ERC personnel at Cambridge, Massachusetts, on 1 February Results of a design study and preliminary design of a space qualified Nd:YAG laser are presented.

A theoretical model of the laser was developed to allow the Skip to main content. Build Your Own Laser, Phaser, Ion Ray Gun and Other Working Space Age Projects Paperback – November 1, /5(24). The space-qualified design of a miniaturized laser for pulsed operation at a wavelength of nm and at repetition rates up to 10 Hz is presented.

This laser consists of a pair of diode-laser pumped, actively q-switched Nd:YAG rod oscillators hermetically sealed and encapsulated in an environment of dry synthetic air. One important aspect of a space borne laser system is a reliable fiber coupled laser diode pump source around nm.

A dedicated development concerning chip design and packaging yielded in a 5*h MTTF (mean time to failure) for the broad area emitters. One important aspect of a space borne laser system is a reliable fiber coupled laser diode pump source around nm.

A dedicated development concerning chip design and packaging yielded in a 5*10 6 h MTTF (mean time to failure) for the broad area emitters.

We present a design methodology for free-space laser communications systems. The first phase includes a characterization through numerical simulations of the channel to evaluate the range of extinction and by: 7.

LASCAD™- The Laser Engineering Tool In this way the wave optics code delivers realistic results for important features of a laser, like intensity and phase profile as shown in the next two slides. The wave optics code takes into account diffraction effects due to apertures, misalignment effects, absorbed pump power distribution and gain.

"Phase Space" by Stephen Baxter is a collection of 25 loosely-related short stories linked to - and expanding on themes introduced in - his Manifold novel trilogy of "Time", "Space" and "Origin".

At its heart is the question posed by the physicist Enrico Fermi: given that the universe is billions of years old, if life exists out in the cosmos /5(20).

In addition, various external tests on vibration testing, thermal vacuum testing, and high energy radiation testing of optical. Laser type: chemical laser similar to ABL (except it uses deuterium-fluoride instead of oxygen-iodine).SBL is more efficient than the ground based version because the rapid adiabatic expansion take place into the vacuum of space.

(This mechanism is very similar to naturally occurring astrophysical plasma recombination lasers in quasars). System design The optical design of the laser pointer has been worked out for a red emitting laser diode. It has the following parameters.

Recent and upcoming deployments of satellite laser communication systems are bringing Internet-like speeds for data transmission in space.

The result could be a revolution in communication, both on Earth and across the solar system. NASA’s first dedicated laser communication in space. tients required for a phase I trial was reduced from for design 1 to, and for designs 2, 3, and 4, re-spectively.
