OCCULT is a CO2 laser heterodyne communications system conceived to meet the Navy's need for ship-to-ship communications with high immunity to jamming and intercept. The opto-mechanical systems, integration in the development of OCCULT was instrumental in demonstrating the first use of automatic acquisition, high data rate, narrow beam optical communications between ships at sea.
