LCRD mission - artist's impression
Currently scheduled for a launch in 2017, LCRD will build on the LADEE mission's use of laser communications, and is described as NASA's first "long duration" optical communications mission. When launched, NASA's technology demonstration payload will be positioned above the equator, a prime location for line-of-sight to other orbiting satellites and ground stations. Credit: NASA.
