New $1.2M project with Xenesis to develop space-to-ground laser communication terminal

A new project with Xenesis was formally approved on June 14 to miniaturize a space-to-ground laser communications terminal originally developed at JPL, and prepare the unit for an on-orbit demonstration on the ISS.  The work will be done by GT-AE graduate students, led by Prof. Gunter, in collaboration with JPL engineers.  More details on the project can be found here:
