The Laser Communications Laboratory (LCL) of the Wright Laboratory Avionics Directorate Wright Patterson Air Force Base is a facility located on the twelfth floor of Area B's Building 620 tower. The LCL has a line-of-sight coverage to any point in the two hundred square kilometer area surrounding WPAFB, including an eight kilometer line-of-sight link to its off-base remote transmit station, Trebein Test Facility (TTF). This paper summarizes the capabilities and provides a physical description of the LCL and TTF which can be used by those needing line-of-sight ranges up to eight kilometers to experimentally evaluate optical communications systems performance. A brief synopsis of past projects, current programs and future projects are included in the paper
