"In this Phase II proposal we outline a plan to develop a novel phase conjugate laser system capable of locking and tracking remote objects. The proposed system uses a pulse laser with an intra-cavity four-wave mixing configuration. During Phase I weperformed an extensive theoretical analysis of the phase conjugation system, built a breadboard and demonstrated the operational principles of the experimental system, including its ability to distinguish the spatial coordinates of a moving object. DuringPhase II, we will extend the performance analysis to include high frequency Doppler shift, design and build a breadboard for verifying and optimizing the predicted system performance, demonstrate and refine laboratory operation, and estimate its workingenvelope. The Phase II project will culminate in a field test to demonstrate tracking of a high velocity remote target."
