Abstract:

ABSTRACT: The proposal offers advanced research in the HEL fiber-array technology area focused on the development and demonstration of a coherent beam combining (phase locking) onto realistic (speckle) moving targets in deep turbulence conditions. It also includes analysis and development of techniques for HEL beam aimpoint selection and stabilization in highly anisoplanatic conditions, proof-of-concept experiments as well as development, integration, and evaluation of an innovative fiber-array-based beam director system composed of densely-packed adaptive fiber collimators (sub-apertures) with integrated capabilities for imaging, aimpointing, AO mitigation of atmospheric turbulence effects, and coherent combining. BENEFIT: Significant performance improvement to free space directed energy (beam projection), target illumination and optical communication systems.
