Laser tagged – how the JSpOC manages laser deconfliction
Army Capt. Austin Baker, Joint Space Operations Center Laser Clearinghouse chief, Tech. Sgt. Joshua Tarrant, JSpOC LCH NCOIC, and Tech. Sgt. Jeffrey Orr, JSpOC LCH technician, conduct training on laser divergence, Aug. 18, 2016, Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif. Laser divergence is a critical parameter when determining the amount of energy a satellite in orbit may receive from a given laser. The three-man shop within the JSpOC is responsible for the registration, scheduling and deconfliction of a wide range of laser programs. (U.S. Air Force photo by Airman 1st Class Robert J.
