Abstract:

Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) proposes LADAR system to detect, acquire, declare, point and track a small UAV at a range over 1Km in heavy weather. The system consists of a pair of LADARs drawing heavily on SPECs LADAR family, using SPEC-Ys LADAR ROIC, which captures the laser response waveform of the first three objects in range. One LADAR is optimized for search mode, continually scanning 2Y. steradian, mapping fixed and slow moving objects, detecting moving objects and establishing trajectories. This LADAR will use large pixels (1.4mr), 10cm optical aperture and a bar shaped laser beam to rapidly search of the hemispherical area. The threat trajectory is handed off to the tracking LADAR. This LADAR uses SPECs EDFA transceiver with DWDM pixel processing, allowing extremely small pixels, 50 micro radian, and perfect transmitter / receiver alignment. This LADAR will use a small hexagonal close pack pixel array, quick search to establish track, and then use the array to maintain a FOR (Field of Regard) track. The track LADAR is configured for a high power beam to be directed by the same optics toward the target as a kill mechanism.
