Advanced Electro-Optical System (AEOS) telescope
Air Force Research Laboratory’s 3.6-meter, 75-ton Advanced Electro-Optical System (AEOS) telescope under laser illumination at its Directed Energy Directorate’s Air Force Maui Optical and Surveillance Site, Maui, Hawaii. The illumination resulted from the multi-wave length laser propagation experiments that were completed at over 10,000 feet and over a 90-mile path between Mauna Loa on the island of Hawaii and the Air Force site atop the extinct volcano, Haleakala, on Maui, Hawaii.
