Abstract:

MANY MILITARY LASER SYSTEMS HAVE BEEN DEPLOYED AND MORE ARE EXPECTEDI FUTURE. SOME EXAMPLES OF SUCH SYSTEMS INCLUDE LASER TARGET DESIGNATOR FINDERS, AND LASER RADAR. IN ORDER TO EFFECTIVELY DEFEND/COUNTER SYSTEMS, IT IS ADVANTAGEOUS TO POSSESS THE ABILITY TO DETECT/IDENTIFY CHARACTERISTICS OF THE THREAT LASER RADIATION. LASER POWER RESEARCH (LPR) PROPOSES A NOVEL, TWO-AXIS, CONFORMAL, OPTI (TACOS) WHICH HAS THE CAPABILITY OF DETECTING THE THREAT LASER ANGLE O (AOA), WAVELENGTH, PULSE LENGTH, PULSE REPETITION FREQUENCY (PEP) AND ELECTROMAGNETIC INTERFERENCE (EMI). THESE CAPABILITIES ALLOW FOR A HI LASER COUNTERMEASURES (LCM) SOPHISTICATION THAN THAT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE. PHASEI OF THIS PROGRAM INCLUDES PROOF-OF-PRINCIPAL EXPERIMENT, DETAILED PHYSICAL MODEL OF THE TACOS RESPONSE TO A VARIETY OF CURRENT LASER WEAPON SYSTEMS.
