|Abstract: ||We report on engineering trades that led to the conceptual design of a laser communications terminal for spacecraft probing Mars. The flight terminal, the ground receiver and the ground transmitter subsystems are described. The flight terminal point design has 0.25 Gb/s downlink data-rate capability from the Mars close distance (0.42 AU). Capability for uplink data-rate of 0.3 Mb/s and ranging with 30 cm precision are also addressed.|
