The capacity to integrate RF and free space optical hybrid communications now feasible given advances in adaptive optics and optical automated gain control. The ORCA program is developing on operationally capable of highly reliable hybrid communications. This paper provides an overview of the ORCA systems and discusses some of the key developments in making the systems a reality.
