The research described in this paper was performed primarily at the California Institute of Technology and at the Center for Space Microelectronics Technology at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory . It has been sponsored by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration , Office of Advanced Concepts and Technology, under grant BK-509-20-42-00-00. The W. M. Keck Observatory is operated as a scientific partnership between the California Institute of Technology and the University of California. It was made possible by the generous gift of the W. M. Keck Foundation, and the support of its late president, Howard Keck. We also wish to thank Jimi Patel and Carl McFadden, our ground station operators at JPL and Tripler Army Medical Center , respectively, and Jon Chock, the Keck Observatory Systems Administrator, for their crucial assistance for the entire duration of this project. The scheduling and operations staff for ACTS have been extremely accommodating as well.
