Modulated Pulsed Laser Sources for Imaging Lidars
Agency / Branch:
DOD / NAVY
The declining threat of "superpower" aggression coupled with the increase in activity from asymmetric threats such as rogue states and terrorist groups has motivated the Navy to put much more emphasis on littoral combat. Unfortunately, Littoral waters are typically more turbid than deep ocean waters so therefore, an imaging system which exhibits increased performance over current methods is needed. Because of this need, SA Photonics is developing a blue-green optical source for air-to-underwater LIDAR-RADAR imaging applications. Our proposed high energy, highly adjustable and phase-locked Modulated Imaging LIDAR Optical Source (MILOS) meets or exceeds all of the parameters listed in the solicitation. Our MILOS will be constructed of commercial telecom fiber optic components utilizing our innovative pumping techniques; therefore our unit will be reliable, highly efficient, rugged, compact, lightweight and low cost.
