LCRD

Laser Communications Relay Demonstration

OVERVIEW

The Laser Communications Relay Demonstration (LCRD) mission is NASA’s first, long duration optical communications mission. The project will help mature concepts and deliver technologies applicable to both near- Earth and deep space communication network missions.

The investigation will enable a variety of robust, future science and exploration missions, providing a higher data rate and delivering more accurate navigation capabilities with reduced size, weight and power requirements.
