The Air Force Research Laboratory’s (AFRL) aggressive drive to reduce the size and weight of satellite systems for advanced space missions is providing a vital thrust to the development of systems-on-a-chip. Adaptive optics technologies offer tremendous potential in reducing the weight and cost of
space-based optical systems. In addition to reductions in weight and cost, the adaptive optics
techniques we present in this article offer advantages in size, speed, and performance. At the
heart of these adaptive optic systems is a very large-scale integrated (VLSI) hybrid-wavefront reconstructor chip.
