Title: Low-Cost High-Power Laser Designator/Rangefinder for Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) Platforms
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Contract: N00421-04-P-0283
Award Amount: $69,994.00
 

Abstract:

We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a small form factor, high-power long-range laser designator/rangefinder for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) platforms using an NP's proprietary technology, a compact high-powernarrow-linewidth fiber laser. The laser designator/rangefinder is based on coherent frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) reflectometry. This proposed approach promises a very long-range (hundreds kilometers) laser designator/rangefinder with lots ofadvantages over most commercial laser rangefinders based on pulsed lasers, including extremely small beam divergence, very high dynamic range and sensitivity, eye-safety, compactness, ruggedness, and mounting flexibility.
