dc.description.abstract The Ground-Orbiter Lasercomm Demonstration (GOLD) is an international co-operative effort between NASA, NASDA, CRL, and JPL involving optical communication experiments between the Table Mountain Observatory (TMF) and the Japanese Engineering Test Satellite (ETS-VI). Experiments verify the feasibility of daytime acquisition and tracking in two-way space-to-ground laser communication from geostationary ranges using multibeam uplinks. Experimental data clearly show significant reduction in scintillation with multiple beams. Collected data includes a combination of atmospheric effects as well as spacecraft vibrations and pointing errors. Furthur analyses are required to deconvolve these effects. en_US
