Abstract:

PrivaTran proposes to develop a semi-active laser (SAL) receiver read-out integrated circuit (ROIC) which, when integrated with a government furnished equipment (GFE) sensor array, will provide an advanced dual-band SAL receiver system. Systems with 16x16 detector elements coupled with the PrivaTran ROIC will provide high timing accuracy, use of both eye-hazardous and eye-safe lasers, precision guidance, improved weapons delivery accuracy, higher resistance to false targets, enhanced jammer discrimination, and will increase overall weapon systems effectiveness while maintaining the same active area as conventional quad-cell systems and a low cost, strap down sensor design. The ROIC provides high-bandwidth, pulse-shape sample-and-hold to capture amplitude and phase data with enhanced resolution and high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The advanced sampling circuit allows pulses to be captured while simultaneously reading the data buffer, resulting in no sampling dead time. These features allow relative range imaging for improved discrimination of false targets, such as fog, smoke and other reflections that can cause targeting errors in urban battle field conditions, leading to improved targeting, better friend-versus-foe identification, designator flexibility, and superior jammer resistance.
