Abstract:

The proposed Phase I/II program produces a multipurpose solid-state-laser-based sensor to provide critical flight path management and mission data for Army rotorcraft. The effort leverages significantly off of an ongoing CTI effort to develop a compact coherent lidar for helicopter ballistic winds applications. The Phase I/II effort will develop and demonstrate critical technologies required to achieve a true multifunction capability with a single sensor installation. The functions to be addressed in Phase I include air data, ground track and altitude, obstacle and wire avoidance. Additional functions include ballistic winds and intraformation communication. BENEFITS: The primary and most significant initial application for the proposed multifunction sensor is for military rotorcraft. Commercial airline applications for a multifunction wind sensor include turbulence and windshear detection, gust load alleviation, wake vortex encounter detection and mitigation, and inflight measurement of winds for fuel efficiency purposes.
